The Sacraments are an important part of our life as Catholics. It is through the sacraments that Jesus is made visibly present to us...an outward sign and symbol of the inner grace of life in Him. Whether it is a sacrament you may receive daily, such as Eucharist, or one-time, such as Baptism, Jesus stands ready to pour out His Holy Spirit in a tangible and powerful way through the sacraments.
The sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dipensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions. CCC #1131
Christ's saving work is continued in the Church through the power of the Holy Spirit.
