The sacraments are a tangible sign of the teachings of the Catholic Church coming alive in our lives, our homes, our schools and our communities. The sacraments are Christ’s love made visible. As Catholic Christians preparation and receiving of the sacraments are defining moments of our stories for though Christ is truly always present, the graces received in a particular moment are defining of sustenance to fulfill our calling to holiness. Father David Butler and I will be discussing the everyday significance of the sacraments, their meaning, their grace and their ultimate role in the life of the Catholic Church.
