The whole liturgical life of the Catholic Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation, the Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.
The Latin word sacramentum means "a sign of the sacred." The sacraments are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence.
Sacraments are "powers that comes forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life-giving. They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church. They are "the masterworks of God" in the new and everlasting covenant.
We urge you to become ever more familiar with the
Sacraments and the (online) version of the
Catechism of the Catholic Church.
