The Catholic Church professes seven Sacraments that convey the grace they signify: Baptism, Confirmation, Communion, Confession, Anointing of the Sick, Ordination, and Marriage. The spiritual life of the church revolves around these signs of God's love and grace. But how does a Sacrament "work"? Are there rules to them? Where in the bible can we find them? Do Catholic's believe they are more important than the bible? Only the Holy Spirit can give grace, not things made on Earth, right? What do they do? Where do they come from? Why do they matter? Who needs them and when? How do they work? 

In this series, Kristina Rake, theologian, lecturer, author, and award-winning preacher, explains everyhing you need to know about the Sacraments and why they are vital, not only to the life of the Church, but to Your life in Christ.
