Baptism

 

 

Baptism, confirmation, and Eucharist are the three sacraments of initiation, and it is important that they are understood together as a unifying whole. In baptism, we are born anew and become sharers in the life of God. "By baptism all sins are forgiven, original sin and all personal sins, as well as all punishment for sin (cf. Council of Florence [1439], DS 1316)" (CCC, 1263).

Eucharist

 
 

 
“Do this is memory of me.” At the Last Supper, Jesus instituted the Eucharist as the memorial of his death and Resurrection”  (CCC,1337).

“Since the Middle Ages, the change of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ has been called ‘transubstantiation.’  This means that the substance of the bread and wine is changed into the substance of the Body and Blood of Christ.  The appearances of bread and wine remain (color, shape, weight, chemical composition), but the underlying reality-that is, the substance-is now the Body and Blood of Christ.”  United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, p. 223

Confirmation

 
 

 
Confirmation, like baptism and Eucharist, is a sacrament of initiation.  Confirmation reaffirms what God has already given us in baptism, deepens our baptismal life, and strengthens our relationship with Christ.  (CCC,1285)  In confirmation, we celebrate that God loves us and is with us.  God promises again to be with us always and fulfills that promise by the living presence of the Holy Spirit within us through the sacrament of confirmation.

Penance

 

 

“What happens in the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation is almost more than one could imagine.  If we could meet Jesus today, we would expect to be received with love and compassion, because he is perfect and knows what it is to forgive.  Instead, we confess to an ordinary human being who represents Jesus Christ sacramentally.  We can expect the priest to receive us with love and care and compassion as well— not because he is sinless, but because he knows what it is to need forgiveness. God transforms even our human frailty into the medium of life-giving grace.”  USCCB Subcommittee for the Jubilee Year 2000   God is ready to forgive. You can change your life today by going to confession.

Matrimony

 
 

 
The love of a married couple is a reflection, a “sacrament” of God’s love.  So it is that the grace of the sacrament perfects the love of husband and wife.  “Christ is the source of this grace and he dwells with the spouses to strengthen their covenant promises, to bear each other’s burdens with forgiveness and kindness, and to experience ahead of time the ‘wedding feast of the Lamb’ (Rv 19:9)” (USCCA, p. 285).

Holy Orders (Ordination)

 

 

 
 
There are three degrees of ordained ministry: bishops, priests, and deacons. Transitional deacons are preparing for the priesthood; permanent deacons are ordained specifically to serve in that role.  Bishops and priests share in the ministerial priesthood; deacons share in a ministry of service. All three are conferred by what we call “ordination,” that is the sacrament of holy orders. (CCC1573-1574).

Annointing of the sick

 

 

“When the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given, the hoped-for effect is that, if it be God’s will, the person be physically healed of illness.  But even if there is no physical healing, the primary effect of the Sacrament is a spiritual healing by which the sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gift of peace and courage to deal with the difficulties that accompany serious illness or the frailty of old age.  Also, a sick person’s sins are forgiven if he or she was not able to go to Confession prior to the celebration of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.”
