8 We are a Sacramental Church
9 The Sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church. CCC 1131
10 Sacrament The word Sacrament comes from the Latin Sacramentum meaning a pledge or oath.
11 Sacraments are the ways and means that God communicates himself to us.
12 Sacraments make what we believe more real. Sacraments are earthly symbols that speak to our imaginations as much as our minds. Sacraments are Actions of the Church. Sacraments are the Verbs of our life.
13 Doors to the Sacred Joseph Martos
14 Sacraments are. of the Church in the sense that they are. by the Church the Church is the sacrament of Christ s action at work in her through the mission of the Holy Spirit. for the Church Sacraments make the Church since they manifest and communicate the mystery of communion with God who is love.
15 Brief History of the Sacraments Each Sacrament can be seen in the earliest practices of the Church and are grounded in the person of Jesus Christ. The Scholastic theologians in the 11 th -14 th centuries attempted to find in scripture where Jesus instituted each of the seven sacraments. Today it is less important to find out when but how Christ is the sacrament of God s love for all humankind. Our understanding of what this means and our response is the work of a lifetime the work of conversion.
16 Sacramental Catechesis National Directory for Catechesis Integrates knowledge of the faith with living the faith. Trinitarian that centers on initiation into the life of the Triune God. Christian life as a lifelong journey. Appropriate to every age level, maturity, and circumstances of those catechized.

Focuses on the symbols, rituals and prayers for each sacrament. A reflection process on the meaning of the sacrament received (Mysagogia).

Catechumenate: Handing on of the gospels and a more integral and systematic catechesis. Purification and Enlightenment: Period of intense preparation for the sacraments through prayer and study of the Creed and Lord s Prayer. Mystagogy: Post-Sacramental catechesis of the sacraments received and integration into the life of the Christian community.
18 Sacraments of Initiation
19 Baptism Baptism is birth into the new life of Christ In accordance with the Lord s will, it is necessary for salvation, as is the Church herself, which we enter by Baptism. (CCC 1277) You were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead. (Col 2:12)
20 The origin and foundation of Christian Baptism is Jesus. The waters of baptism did not purify him; he cleansed the waters. He comes to sanctify the Jordan for our sake to begin a new creation through the Spirit and water. (St. Gregory Nazianzen)
22 The Ritual of Baptism The Sign of the Cross. Reading from Scripture. Exorcism and Anointing with oil. Blessing the Baptismal Water. Renunciation of Sin and Profession of Faith. Pouring or immersion with water three times. Anointing with Sacred Chrism. Reception of the white garment and the candle.
23 The Symbols of Baptism
24 The Effects of Baptism Original Sin and all personal sins, and temporal punishment due to sin is removed. Baptism gives us new life as adopted children of God. Become members of the Church, the Body of Christ. Provides a common foundation among all Christians. Seals the Christian with an indelible spiritual character of belonging to Christ that not even sin can erase.
25 Confirmation The reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. Jesus mission was in communion with the Holy Spirit that descended on Him on the occasion of his baptism. Before His death, Jesus promised the Spirit would be given to the Apostles and the entire Church.
26 Baptism is a passive power (the power to receive other sacraments). Confirmation is an active power (the power to witness to the faith in the world. Thomas Aquinas
27 Ritual for Confirmation The Bishop extending his two hands over those to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Prayer asking God for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit. Anointing with Chrism on the forehead. The words: Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit

The gifts are blessed and consecrated becoming the Body and Blood of Christ. We are offered the Host with the words: The Body of Christ We respond: Amen We are offered the Cup with the words: The Blood of Christ We respond: Amen
32 Symbols of Eucharist
33 Guidelines for the Reception of Communion We are encouraged to receive Communion devoutly and frequently. Conscious of no grave sin before receiving Communion. Fast for one hour prior to receiving Communion. A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to receive Communion without prior sacramental confession except for grave reason where there is no opportunity for confession. If confession is not possible, the person is to make an act of perfect contrition and commit to confessing as soon as possible.
34 Union with our Lord. Effects of Eucharist An increase in Sanctifying Grace. Forgiveness of Venial sins and the grace to resist entering into Mortal sin.
35 Sacraments of Healing

God the Father of mercies, through the death and resurrection of his Son, has reconciled the world to himself, and sent the Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins; through the ministry of the Church may God give you pardon and peace, and I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Acts of Penance.

42 The Symbols of Reconciliation
43 The Effects of Reconciliation Reconciliation with God through the forgiveness of sins. Restores us to God s grace. Reconciliation with the Church. The merciful judgement of God that enables our continued conversion of faith.

He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. Letter of St. James
45 A Brief History of Anointing of the Sick
46 The Ritual of Anointing of the Sick Only bishops and priests may be ministers of the sacrament. A penitential rite followed by the Liturgy of the Word. Laying on of hands by the bishop or priest. Anointing with the blessed Oil of the Sick on the forehead and hands accompanied by these words: Through this holy anointing may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up. If the recipient of the sacrament is able, Communion, also known as Viaticum, may be given.
47 The Symbols of Anointing of the Sick

49 Sacraments at the Service of Communion
50 Holy Orders
51 The Ritual of Holy Orders The men to be ordained are called forward. They express their promise to accept the responsibilities of ordination. The ordinands prostrates himself as a symbol of his unworthiness. The Bishop lays hands on the head of those to be ordained. The reception of a stole and chasuble. Anointing of the hands with Chrism by the Bishop. The reception of a chalice and paten.
52 Symbols of Holy Orders
53 Effects of Holy Orders Configures the recipient to Christ by special grace of the Holy Spirit so he may serve as an instrument for his Church. Enables him to act as a representative of Christ. As in Baptism and Confirmation, Holy Orders confers an indelible spiritual character that cannot be repeated.
54 Marriage The vocation of marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures and spiritual attitudes. CCC 1603
55 Brief History of Marriage There was no sacrament of Marriage between Christians in the early Church. Liturgical blessings or having a minister present did not exist before the 4 th century. The Church became involved in the celebration of marriage when it began to have a significant influence in the secular world. Our modern understanding of the Sacrament of Marriage has moved away from the marriage relationship as a contract to a biblical notion of covenant.
56 The Ritual of Marriage According to the Latin tradition, the spouses as ministers of Christ s grace mutually confer upon each other the sacrament of marriage by expressing their consent before the Church. The priest or deacon invites the couple to exchange their consent in the presence of the Church s ministers, two witnesses and the congregation. Rings are blessed and exchanged.
57 Symbols of Marriage
58 Effects of Marriage The gift of the bond between spouses. The grace of the sacrament perfects the love of husband and wife, binds them together in fidelity, and helps them welcome and care for children.
59 The Minister of Sacraments The ordained have a unique function in the celebration of liturgy and the sacraments. The Minister must intend to do what the Church does. The Minister does not have to know everything about the theology of the liturgy or sacrament but must believe every aspect of the Church s teachings. Although the Minister should be in a state of grace, the liturgy or sacrament would still be valid even if the Minister is in the state of mortal sin.
60 As Recipients of The Sacraments We do not have to understand everything about the history and theology of liturgy and the sacraments, just a basic understanding about what the sacrament does. We do need to approach the sacraments of our own free will. Exceptions: the Baptism of infants and Anointing of the Sick when the person is unconscious. Even human inability to understand, does not prevent God from offering us grace and love.
61 Sacraments confer grace God places grace in the sacraments, and the sacraments make that grace available to us. Thomas Aquinas The celebration of the sacraments reminds God of his love for humankind and gives grace to those who directly ask for it. By celebrating the sacraments, people become disposed (their hearts are open) to receive grace.
62 Sacramental grace is a gift We receive Grace only as we receive a gift, not something we deserve or earn. The gift of Grace is accompanied by the responsibility of responding to that Grace.
64 Blessings Among sacramentals, blessings hold a special place. There are blessings for persons, meals, objects, places, and special occasions. All blessings praise God for his gifts. Most blessings invoke the Holy Trinity, sometimes accompanied with the sprinkling of Holy Water. Making the Sign of the Cross, morning and evening prayers, prayer before meals.
65 Conclusion Liturgy is the most important work of the Church and for the Church. Sacraments are not abstract Catholic concepts but earthly symbols that speak to our imaginations and well as our minds. Grace that is received through the sacraments is a gift, freely given by God. The Sacraments are essential markers, key orientations, and spiritual resources that show Christians how to respond to God s love. Liturgy and Sacraments are the verbs in our Christian life, prayer and work. Liturgy and Sacraments are the Church in action in the lives of her members for the benefit of all.

67 Diocese of Boise Office of Catechesis Jackie Hopper, Director of Religious Education and Catechetical Leadership
68 Reflection Questions What can we do as catechists to promote the understanding that the Liturgy is the Work of all the faithful? How do we instill in our students that Sacraments are doors to the sacred that lead us to holiness? How could the baptismal catechumenate be incorporated into every catechetical lesson? What does the statement, the more we receive grace the more we are able to respond mean to you?
69 Closing prayer We gather Lord God as your people to offer you our sacrifice of prayer and worship. We are fed on your Word, refreshed through your living water, feel the encircling of your Spirit around this community of faith and around our individual lives. As we go from our places of worship, may we continue to know your presence and power in the very different lives that we lead. To your praise and glory. Amen.
