I just got back from the Easter Vigil Mass. It was beautiful!
Two adults were baptized, one of whom I have been instructing in RCIA for the past year (the other was in the Spanish-speaking RCIA program). I was so proud of them!
The main celebrant was a retired Monsignor who assists at our parishes; our pastor concelebrated.
After Mass, as the last members of the congregation were leaving, Monsignor signaled for the two newly baptized (and supposedly confirmed) adults and their sponsors to return to him. Apparently someone had given him the wrong oil for Confirmation; in retrospect he thought it didn’t have the fragrance of Chrism. He thought the validity of the sacrament was doubtful (valid matter matters), so he located the right oil, explained what had happened, let them smell the Chrism, and re-did the essential part of the rite of Confirmation.
Good catch, Monsignor! I’m glad he was on the ball. He’s a gem, one of my favorite priests.
