THE INITIATION AND SOCIAL SACRAMENTS
Signs and Instruments of God's Grace
The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred significant and important for Christians.
They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence.
That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.If you learn more about the sacraments, you can celebrate them more fully.
Among Christians, sacraments are said to derive from practices instituted by Jesus like the casting out of demons.
