(traditionally abbreviated "OS" for oleum sanctum), Oil of the Infirm ("OI"), and Sacred Chrism ("SC").... the oil is almost always applied using the right thumb, or occasionally is poured on. When applied with the thumb, it is usually applied in the form of a cross. This is to remind us that all blessing come from the crucified Christ, the source of all healing and life for the world. When anointing accompanies Baptism, the cross is marked in oil on the baptized person's forehead. In this way they are 'sealed' with the Holy Spirit as a reminder of Revelation 7:3 in which the servants of God are "sealed... upon their foreheads." In Baptism we are made servants of God. Oil as a symbol reminds us of God's boundless generosity towards us, and of His never-ending love of us. When we use it to anoint people in Church, it is more than merely a symbol, or reminder. It becomes one of the channels by which God's power comes into the world, by which He blesses us with His Holy Spirit. Oil of chrism This is used in the West immediately after baptism; both in the East and West it was used very early for the Sacrament of Confirmation (see CHRISM).WestbaptismWestSacrament of ConfirmationCHRISM The oil is essentially no different from any other olive oil, but it is made special by being set aside specially for God's purposes. God takes the ordinary things of this world, in this case olive oil, and makes them holy. He works through material things to show Himself to the world and to bring people back to Himself. Facts For Teacher
The Baptismal Font or Pool (it is to be kept in clear view of the congregation; whenever it is seen, it acts as a reminder of one's own baptism, and a reminder to pray and work for others to be baptized.)Font Anointing with oil (commissioning for ministry; Messianic) making the Sign of the Cross with motion of hand or arms (baptized into Jesus' death) Laying On of Hands (commissioning the new Christian to be a witness to the Gospel, and to be a lay minister, as all Christians are) Baptismal Robe (putting on Christ; being clothed in righteousness; the robe (Galatians 3:17) is white (Revelation 7)) Baptismal Candle (Pesach image; enlightened by the Spirit; lit for the first time (in liturgical churches) using the flame from the paschal candle; relit on baptismal anniversaries) Baptismal Sponsors are people who take personal responsibility for nurturing the faith of the baptized, especially infants. They're usually called 'godparents', though today's godparents rarely actually fill this role. Teens and adults may have someone who is as a 'mentor' to them, or acting as a spiritual counselor; such a person can be a baptismal sponsor. It's important that a godparent not be just a 'friend', but a person who is a committed Christian, active in fellowship with other Christians.
