What are Sacraments?
Sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, through which Divine life is given.
THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH
Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC)1210 – Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. the seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.
