The Seven Sacraments
The Seven Sacraments, Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony, are a most important part of Catholic life. They are sacred signs of God’s love and concern for us. Through the sacraments, Jesus makes “his saving events present and real for us today,” often at the most important moments of our human lives, thus there is a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life. The Sacraments invite us, heal us, and call us to service.
