Resources on Sacraments from Invitation by Rev Alfred McBride, O.Praem
Paulist National Evangelization Association, Washington, DC
A Sacrament is a visible sign, or ritual experience, in which we encounter Christ’s saving love in the context of the Church community. In this event, our capacity to be open to Christ’s action depend upon the maturity and depth of our faith disposition. Therefore, the sacramental event is like a dialogue or encounter between Christ and ourselves, as members of the Church community.
