Anointing with Sacred Chrism

Deacon Hamilton blesses the parents of the children who have been baptized.

I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.   Amen

Parents and godparents, this light is entrusted to you to be kept burning brightly.  These children have been enlightened by Christ. . . .may they walk always as children of the light!    May they keep the flame of faith alive in their hearts.  When the Lord comes, may they go out to meet him with all the saints in the heavenly kingdom!
