Because H.H. Pope Tawadros II will, by the grace of God, be preparing a new batch of the Holy Myron Oil again this week, this question came to mind:
Are the original spices that were on the shroud of our Lord Jesus Christ part of the Myron that we use today? (and by definition these spices would be used as part of the preparation of the Myron)
Or is it that we use the same types of spices as those that were used to anoint and subsequently bury our Lord?
I know this might seem like a very basic thing to ask, but upon reading Church sources on this Holy sacrament, I am still confused.
Thank you and God bless you all +
