"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not from you; it is the gift of God.
- Ephesians 2:8
What are the sacraments?
The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence. That's what theologians mean when they say that sacraments are at the same time signs and instruments of God's grace.
