Chrism Mass 2010 - Church of St. John Marie Vianney
The Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur celebrated Chrism Mass this year on March 24 at the Church of St. John Marie Vianney, Tampin. This small community played host to over 50 priests and bishops from the Archdiocese and from other countries who renewed their priestly commitment to serve God and His people. At this same celebration, the 3 holy oils were blessed and consecrated, namely the Oil of the Sick, the Oil of Catechumen, and Holy Chrism.
During his homily, Archbishop Murphy Pakiam spoke about the person, life, spirituality and ministry of St. John Marie Vianney, the Patron of Parish Priests and of the church in Tampin. "It is a spirituality and theology" said the Archbishop, "learnt at the feet of the Master and not from any Catechism book. It betrays a deep mystical theology which expresses profound communion with God and with his people."
