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 sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the grace proper to each sacrament. They produce fruits in those who receive them.
The Church celebrates seven sacraments:
Sacraments of Initiation
- Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life. It is the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door that gives access to all other sacraments. To be valid, Baptism has to be administered with the formula “N., I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” while water is poured on the forehead of the candidate three times. The ordinary minister of Baptism is a priest or a deacon. In case of death any person can administer Baptism. Baptism can be received only once.
- Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace in the one who receives it. It is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation (as sons and daughters of God). Confirmation makes us ambassadors of Christ. It puts on us responsibility to be witnesses of Christ and of our faith. The minister of Confirmation is the bishop or a priest appointed by him. It can only be received once.
- Eucharist is the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ. In the Eucharist we receive Jesus entirely: Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. The reception of the Eucharist makes us enter into communion (oneness) with Christ and the Christian community. The more we receive the Eucharist, the more we grow in holiness. In order to celebrate the Eucharist, you must have bread, wine and water. The Eucharist is made present in the celebration of the Mass by one who has been ordained a priest.
Sacraments of Healing (or Sacraments of the Sick)
- Reconciliation is the sacrament through which we receive the forgiveness for our sins committed after Baptism. It is also called the Sacrament of Penance or Confession. Only an ordained priest can hear confession. We are always obliged to confess ALL mortal sins that we have committed. This may be received as many times as needed.
- Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament administered to those who are sick or in danger of death. Only an ordained priest can administer the Anointing of the Sick. This may be received as many times as needed. Any person who is in danger of death, and anyone who asks to receive the sacrament may be anointed.
Sacraments of Vocation (or Sacraments of Service)
- Holy Orders is also called the Sacrament of the Priesthood. It can only be given to men who are baptized. Only a bishop can rightly ordain. Holy Orders empowers one to be able celebrate the Mass, to hear confessions, anoint the sick.
- Matrimony is the sacrament that is celebrated by a man and woman who choose to live together as husband and wife for the rest of their lives. The ministers of Matrimony are the man and woman themselves who receive the sacrament.
