"The Chrism Mass is one of the principal expressions of the fullnes of the Bishop’s Priesthood and signifies the close unity of the Priests with him.  During the Mass, which he concelebrates with Priests from various sections of the diocese, the Bishop consecrates the Chrism and blesses the other oils.  The newly baptized are anointed and confirmed with the Chrism consecrated by the Bishop.  Catechumens are prepared and disposed for Baptism with the second oil.  And the sick are anointed in their illness with the third oil."
