Sacraments

In Baptism the fallen children of men become cherished children of God; through Confirmation the weak become strong, committed Christians; through Penance the guilty are reconciled; through the Eucharist the hungry become bread for others; through Matrimony and Holy Orders individualists become servants of love; through the Anointing of the Sick the despairing become people of confidence.  The sacrament in all the sacraments is Christ himself.  In him we men, lost in selfishness, grow and mature into the true life that has no end.
