The Sacraments

There are seven Sacraments in the Catholic Church. "[They] touch all the stages and all of the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith" (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1210).

'The sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions.' (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1131)
