Oil Containers

I’ve blogged about my parish’s ambry before, but I don’t think I’ve ever show you the close-ups of the oil vessels.

They look rather smudgy. I took these images from my cell phone early in Holy Week before they were cleaned up for their presentation (and the oils within) on Holy Thursday. Oil of the sick above. Oil of catechumens below.

And sacred chrism:

I think I had the wrong lid on the chrism here. The threaded stopper looks like it goes with the oil of the sick. I had intended to post these images before, but they were somewhere in transit between my cell, the download web site, and my image files on my home computer.

Anybody have well-crafted oil vessels in your parish?
