Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS, commissioned Garcia
Art Glass of San Antonio to create nine five-gallon vessels for the
blessing of the holy oils at the Chrism Mass, which was celebrated
March 27 at St. Luke Church. Gini Garcia created and customized the
the hand-blow Chrism Oil vessels, while Emilio Siller created the
custom iron/metal carts in which the oils were cradled. Many of
the priests present at the liturgy commented on the beauty and
symbolism of the new vessels.
