More than 3,000 pack LA Cathedral for 2024 Chrism Mass

The mission of sanctifying the world and serving others in a priestly way is “not only for those who are ordained,” said Archbishop José H. Gomez at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ annual Chrism Mass March 25.

“As the Lord’s ‘priests,’ we share in his mission of sanctifying this world, of making this world God’s kingdom — a world of truth, beauty, and goodness; a world of holiness, justice, and mercy,” Archbishop Gomez said in homily.

“This is what the name ‘Christian’ means. It means that we are the Lord’s ‘anointed ones.’ ”

More than 3,000 people — among them some 450 priests serving in the archdiocese — filled the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels for the Monday evening liturgy, where the oils to be used for the sacraments of baptisms, confirmation, ordinations and anointing of the sick throughout the year were blessed and later distributed to parishes.
