THE SACRAMENTS: DISCOVERING THE TREASURES OF DIVINE LIFE
Some of the most important and necessary building blocks of human life are so often taken for granted: water, air, fire, food. . . . We live each day without any sense of gratitude for these blessings that sustain our physical life.
And so it is for our spiritual life. The sacraments are the very lifeblood of our soul, yet in the midst of our busy lives, we can fail to understand their power and importance. Without them, we are spiritually dead. With them, the very life of God runs through us.
• How the sacraments are anchored in the life and death of Jesus and are the medium through which he pours his life into our souls.
• Discovering the purpose, meaning, and symbolism behind the matter of the sacraments.
• Understanding how Christ administers his sacraments through human hands and what our own role is in receiving them.
• An expert dissection of the instrumentality, effects, elements, character, and fruits of each sacrament.
