Sacred Chrism

The Sanctum Chrisma (note the abbreviation SC) sits in St. John's Chapel.

Pure oil of olives with an admixture of balsam and blessed by our Archbishop, this sweet smelling chrism glistens on the head and hands of a bishop at his consecration and on the hands of a priest at his ordination.
