Sacraments are signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church.
The Church recognizes the existence of Seven Sacraments:
* Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
* Sacraments of Healing: Penance and the Anointing of the Sick.
* Sacraments at the Service of Communion: Marriage and Holy Orders.
Through the Sacraments, God shares his holiness with us so that we, in turn, can make the world holier.
