“The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14)

Jesus Christ is the fullness of God’s presence in the world of time. The place where we meet Him in a most remarkable fashion is in the Sacraments, seven unique sacred events that He established for us as moments of grace to share in His divine life.

SACRAMENT: An efficacious sign of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us through the work of the Holy Spirit (774, 1131). The Sacraments (called “Mysteries” in the Eastern [Catholic] Churches are seven in number: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance (or Reconciliation), Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony (1210).
