Homily notes of Most Rev. We gather around the table of the Lord to celebrate the Eucharist as a diocesan community. I thank all of you for being here and I thank you and the communities you represent for your daily commitment to the life of the Church of Jesus Christ in this diocese.

Vincent de Paul Parish in Austin. During the Mass, the bishop blessed the three oils used to administer the sacraments. The oil of catechumens will be used for those preparing for baptism. The oil of the sick will be used to anoint the sick and those who are suffering and give strength and healing to those who are ill, he said. He shared a story of when he baptized Violeta Aurora, the grandchild of friends he has known since he was a seminarian. We were all amazed by her reaction. The moment reminds us the Spirit of the Lord is upon those who have been baptized and anointed with the oil of gladness, the oil of chrism, and that we are all missionary disciples. During the Mass, the priests serving throughout the diocese also renewed their priestly promises. At least priests attended the Mass. Together these men gave nearly years of priestly ministry to the church.
Seminarians carry an urn of olive oil during the chrism Mass at St. Each diocese celebrates a chrism Mass to bless the oils used in sacraments and long-standing prayer rituals throughout the year. Priests also renew their vows of service to God and the Church at the Mass. A chrism Mass traditionally is celebrated the morning of Holy Thursday, but it can be moved to another day to accommodate the needs of a local diocese.

He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end. I recently left my family, friends and state to move across the country to be with my best friend and boyfriend during his residency. The Church does not recognize homosexual marriage, and does not condone sexual activity outside of marriage. I want to do that though with my husband involved, not be married and be like a single mum.
