Faithful shepherds

April 16, 2017

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley

Each year during Holy Week, priests serving in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, like priests everywhere, gather with one another and with their bishop for the Chrism Mass. It is during this solemn liturgy that the bishop blesses and consecrates the holy oils and sacred chrism that will be used during the year ahead in the celebration of the sacraments. It is during this Mass that priests reflect upon and renew their sacred priestly promises in the presence of the bishop and the gathered faithful.

This is a very important day for priests. It reminds us of what an awesome gift it is to share in the eternal priesthood of Jesus Christ. It brings to our attention the importance of our sacred duties and our communion with the bishop and with one another in the brotherhood of priests.

Fieles pastores

16 de abril, 2017

Arzobispo Pablo S. Coakley

Cada año durante la Semana Santa, los sacerdotes que sirven en la Arquidiócesis de Oklahoma City, así como los sacerdotes de todo el mundo, se reúnen unos con otros sacerdotes y con su obispo para la Misa Crismal. Es durante esta solemne liturgia que el obispo bendice y consagra los santos oleos  y el sagrado crisma que se utilizarán durante el próximo año en la celebración de los sacramentos. Es durante esta Misa que los sacerdotes reflexionan y renuevan sus sagradas promesas sacerdotales en presencia del obispo y de los fieles reunidos.

Este es un día muy importante para los sacerdotes. Recordamos el regalo increíble que es compartir en el eterno sacerdocio de Jesucristo. Nos enfocamos en la importancia de nuestros sagrados deberes y nuestra comunión con el obispo y entre nosotros en fraternidad sacerdotal.
