The Sacraments are vital to the life of a Catholic and for the life of the Catholic Church. Receiving them help Catholics to a more personal relationship with Jesus.
“Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life:1 they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.”Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1210
