2022 Catholic Media Association honorable mention in liturgy

The Catholic Church uses three different sacred oils in some of its most solemn ceremonies: the baptism of children, confirmation, the anointing of the sick, the ordination of a priest, the ordination of a bishop, and the dedication of a church and altar. Many churches place the three oils on display for the view of the faithful and for the convenience of the clergy. Sacred Oils explores the blessing and consecration of the oils at the annual Chrism Mass, as well as the guidelines for their usage. Inspirational and educational, this book will delight everyone interested in the ceremonies of the Catholic Church.

Paul Turner is pastor of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Kansas City, Missouri and director of the Office of Divine Worship for the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. He holds a doctorate in sacred theology from Sant' Anselmo in Rome. His publications include: Ars Celebrandi: Celebrating and Concelebrating Mass, The Stations of the Cross in Atonement for Abuse and for the Healing of All, Glory in the Cross, Let Us Pray, Inseparable Love, One Love, Whose Mass Is It? Light in the Darkness, and When Other Christians Become Catholic published by Liturgical Press. He is a contributor to Give Us This Day.

Reviews

This book is an informative and enlightening journey for Christians to understand the relationship between the oil, as an ointment, and the sacraments. This book is a must-read for Catholics who want to have a better understanding about the richness of the Sacraments’ foundations.
