Chrism Mass

Psalm text (Ps 88:21-22,25,27)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

I have found David my servant
and with my holy oil anointed him.
My hand shall always be with him
and my arm shall make him strong.

My truth and my love shall be with him;
by my name his might shall be exalted.
He will say to me: ‘You are my father,
my God, the rock who saves me.’

Gospel Verse (Is 61:1)

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; he sent me to bring Good News to the poor.

Psalm text (Ps 89:21-22, 25+27)

Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

I have found David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have anointed him,
that My hand may be always with him,
and that My arm may make him strong.

My faithfulness and My kindness shall be with him,
and through My name shall his horn be exalted.
He shall cry to Me, "You are my Father,
my God, the Rock, my Savior."
