There are seven Sacraments in the Church, Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony and Holy Orders.
The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the Sacraments.
"The Sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church,
by which divine life is dispensed to us" through the work of the Holy Spirit. (CCC 1131)
In human life, signs and symbols are found everywhere. Because we are
both body and spirit, we express our inner selves through
visible signs and symbols.
"The purpose of the Sacraments is to sanctify men, to build up the Body of Christ and,
finally, to give worship to God. Because they are signs they also instruct.
They not only presuppose faith, but by words and objects to nourish, strengthen, and
express it. That is why they are called sacraments of faith.'" (CCC 1123)
