OCA Chrism

On holy Monday at St Tikhon’s, they made holy chrism. It is only made every few years and goes out to all of the OCA parishes in the United States. Once it is mixed, it is to be continually stirred by a priest or bishop until Holy Thursday. The beautiful scent of it filled the church building while we were there. 

Holy Week is pretty much the best, especially at a monastery.
