  • According to the Church fathers, if the olive tree stands as an image of the Father, and its fruit, the olives, are an image of the Son, then the pure extract of the oil represents the Holy Spirit, which flows throughout the Church on earth, explained the program for the Chrism Mass celebrated on March 30.
