THE SACRAMENTS

The sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace. The two great sacraments given by Christ to his Church are the Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist (Book of Common Prayer, pages 857-858). 

 

BAPTISM

Holy Baptism is the sacrament, in which water is the outward sign, is the sacrament in which the person is baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. It is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God (Book of Common Prayer, page 858).

 

THE HOLY EUCHARIST

The Holy Eucharist is called the Lord's Supper, and Holy Communion; it is also known as the Divine Liturgy, the Mass, and the Great Offering. It is the sacrament commanded by Christ for the continual remembrance of his life, death, and resurrection, until his coming again (Book of Common Prayer, page 859).

 

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop (Book of Common Prayer, page 860).

 

ORDINATION

Ordination is the rite in which God gives authority and the grace of the Holy Spirit to those being made bishops, priests, and deacons, through prayer and the laying on of hands by bishops (Book of Common Prayer, page 860).

 

HOLY MATRIMONY

Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which the woman and man enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows (Book of Common Prayer, page 861).

 

RECONCILIATION OF A PENITENT

Penance, or Reconciliation of a Penitent, is the rite in which those who repent of their sins may confess them to God in the presence of a priest, and receive the assurance of pardon and the grace of absolution (Book of Common Prayer, page 861).

 

UNCTION

Unction is the rite of anointing the sick with oil, or the laying on of hands, by which God's grace is given for the healing of spirit, mind, and body (Book of Common Prayer, page 861).
