The Seven Sacraments of the Church

Summary of the Course


After the sin of our first parents, we all find ourselves stranded, incapable of finding our way back to God on our own. And that’s precisely why Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, became Incarnate—to save us. But before returning to the Father, He graciously left us with the necessary means of salvation. These are the Seven Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, The Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. Through them, He ministers to us, just as He had to the people of His time: healing us, feeding us, and leading us to our eternal home.


Now, you can try to get to heaven on your own, using alternative methods, but honestly, you will be putting your own salvation at risk… The Seven Sacraments are the effective means instituted by Jesus Himself for our salvation. Hence their reception is not only convenient but essential for our spiritual growth and development.


In this course, Fr. Ryan will explore the biblical origins of the Sacraments and delve into the significance of their matter and form—the outward signs that constitute each sacrament. Additionally, he’ll provide practical advice for some of the sacraments, such as administering baptism in emergencies or making small adjustments in our confessions that yield significant results.


So, don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to embark on a profound and comprehensive study of the Seven Sacraments of the Church.
