Sacraments:

 

God’s grace bestowed upon us.

 

 

 

 

 

Every culture and religion has celebrations to recognize various passages in life.  Birthdays, Weddings, graduation, anniversaries, funerals, etc.  All  rituals symbolize an meaningful event or period in a person’s life.  And these passages should be celebrated in the context of a community to show that we see them as important!

 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines the sacraments as "efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us.” (3131)

 

Sacraments are ceremonies that point to something sacred.  They are channels of God grace to us.  They are meant to communicate God’s love and life(grace) to us who receive them – the divine life that comes from God alone, his strength, power, holiness – God’s very life.  Grace is not a thing to be measured.  Grace is essentially God’s love and presence in our lives.  It is a relationship between God and the individual.  We celebrate the recognition of this through the sacraments and how we live our lives.
