Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."
The Holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist. The Eucharistic sacrifice, the memorial of the death and resurrection of the Lord, is the source and summit of all worship and Christian life. Indeed, the other sacraments and the ecclesiastical works of the apostolate are closely connected with the Eucharist.
In the sacrament of penance the faithful who confess their sins to a legitimate minister, are sorry for them, and intend to reform themselves obtain from God through the absolution imparted by the same minister forgiveness for the sins they have committed after baptism and, at the same, time are reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by sinning.
In the sacrament of Confirmation we finish the rites of initiation we began with our Baptism. After learning more about our faith and the church we are entering, we confirm before a bishop that we wish to be full members of the Catholic faith. Just as the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles on Pentecost, the Spirit fills us and empowers us to build the Kingdom of God.
Marriage has been raised by Christ to the dignity of a sacrament between the baptized. The essential properties of marriage are unity and indissolubility, which in Christian marriage obtain a special firmness by reason of the sacrament. According to their own vocation, those who live in the marital state are bound by a special duty to work through marriage and the family to build up the people of God.
Anointing of the Sick
The Anointing of the Sick is not a sacrament for only those at the point of death, but is for anyone in danger of death from sickness or old age. By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests, the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.
Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. By divine institution, the sacrament of orders establishes some among the Christian faithful as sacred ministers through an indelible character which marks them. They are consecrated and designated, each according to his grade, to nourish the people of God, fulfilling in the person of Christ the Head the functions of teaching, sanctifying, and governing.
