Blessing of the Holy Oil

We beseech you Lord, that by the power of your grace this mingling of fragrance and oil may become for us a sacrament of your blessing (Make sign of the cross over the oil).

Pour out in abundance the gifts of the Holy Spirit on our brothers and sisters anointed with this oil; adorn with the splendor of holiness the places and things signed by these sacred oils; but above all by the mystery of this oil bring to completion the growth of your church until she reaches that measure of fullness in which you, resplendent with eternal light, will be all in all with Christ in the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
