King Charles III Coronation Oil Consecrated in Church of Jerusalem

The anointing oil to be used to coronate the King was consecrated on Friday, March 3 at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

Ahead of the coronation of King Charles III on 6 May 2023, the chrism oil to be used during the event has been consecrated by the Patriarch and Archbishop of Jerusalem.

A new oil was formed for the occasion based on the opinion of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, to honour the connection of the King with Jerusalem and also to relate the coronation with the Bible and the holy land. The consecration ceremony took place in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, which is one of the most sacred grounds of christianity.

The official Twitter handle of the Royal Family had put up posts of the consecration of the coronation oil. One of the captions of the posts read, “The oil has been created using olives harvested from two groves on the Mount of Olives at the Monastery of Mary Magdalene and the Monastery of the Ascension. 

The Monastery of Mary Magdalene is the burial place of His Majesty’s grandmother, Princess Alice of Greece.” “The Coronation oil is based on the oil used at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the formula of which has been used for hundreds of years.

It will also be used for the anointing of Her Majesty The Queen Consort.”

The consecration was performed  by the Patriarch of Jerusalem, His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III, and the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem, The Most Reverend Hosam Naoum.

According to an article from the official website of the Archbishop of Canterbury, he said, “I am honoured and grateful that His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III and Archbishop Hosam Naoum have consecrated the oil that will be used to anoint His Majesty The King. I want to thank especially His Beatitude for providing this Coronation Oil, which reflects The King’s personal family connection with the Holy Land and his great care for its peoples. I am also delighted that the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem shared in the consecration of the oil.

“Since beginning the planning for the Coronation, my desire has been for a new Coronation Oil to be produced using olive oil from the Mount of Olives. This demonstrates the deep historic link between the Coronation, the Bible and the Holy Land. From ancient kings through to the present day, monarchs have been anointed with oil from this sacred place. As we prepare to anoint The King and The Queen Consort, I pray that they would be guided and strengthened by the Holy Spirit.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
