“A Sacrament is "an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace."
“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:1 they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's
life of faith.”
