The seven signs of the Divine that we call sacraments offer us a sense of belonging, confirm our commitments, forgive our failures, nourish our souls, give us strength for the journey, and bring us healing and hope. As graced moments, the sacraments mark the times of our lives as they awaken and affirm God’s presence within us and among us. As signs and symbols, the sacraments stimulate the senses with bread, wine, oil and water. They express our identity as a people of faith and our mission as a Church to reflect the reality of Christ’s presence in the world.
