7 sacraments symbol
Most of them are also found in our own homes: oil, bread, light, water, wine, and white clothing. They are simple, basic and very accessible to us.
These simple elements of everyday life invite us to reflect on the mystery of our faith. In our present age we are confronted with so many flashing images and shrill sounds competing for our attention that we can end up feeling fragmented, because we have no time to reflect or to be still. We sometimes long for peace and a sense of calm. One way to promote inner peace is to contemplate the meaning of a symbol, such as a flame or a simple bowl of clear water. It gives a glimpse into the mystery of the divine at the heart of life.
In the liturgy and in all sacraments simple elements from life are brought forward and made sacred. This language is expressed in symbols and rituals which are beyond words and also, of course, in words that help us communicate the mystery of our relationship with the Divine. This is the language of the liturgy.
All seven sacraments employ this symbol. We call the prayer which accompanies the imposition of hands an epiclesis, which is an invocation. In the Eucharist, the priest stretches his hands over the bread and wine to call upon the Holy Spirit to consecrate these gifts into the body and blood of Christ.
Wheat is grown and ground, transformed by human work to make bread. Grapes are grown and crushed, transformed by human work to make wine. It is traditionally the work of human hands.
Bread is life. Wine is joy. The sharing of food and drink is often linked with peace-making and the resolution of differences. From the earliest times, human beings have shared meals together.
The very act of eating and drinking together is a symbol of fellowship, common life, common love. In biblical times, people ate everything from the same plate. Sharing food in this way increased the sense of solidarity and fellowship among those eating it. They became, in a sense, one body. The breaking of the bread was the ritual gesture that established communion among those at table in a Jewish ritual meal. The Last Supper was such a meal.
Jesus identified the broken bread and poured wine with his own Body and Blood, broken and poured out in his suffering and Death. In the biblical narratives we read of Moses before the burning bush, intensely aware of the presence of God.
We read of the Hebrew people journeying through the desert, led by a pillar of fire by night. In the Bible, transformation is nearly always manifested by light, In the Old Testament, Moses is transfigured.
In the New Testament, Jesus is transfigured, shining brighter than the sun. We too will be transformed. At Baptism we are given a lighted candle to symbolise the light of Christ. This is the transforming light of faith that drives out the darkness of despair.
And we are commissioned to keep this light burning brightly throughout our lives. For the Jewish people, our ancestors in faith, anointing with oil meant setting the person apart for a particular mission. Just as royalty and Priests are anointed for a particular mission, so are we as Christians given a particular mission to be Christ in the world today.
We call ourselves Christians because we are anointed in Baptism. We are the community anointed to continue the work of Christ, the anointed one. White is the colour of Christian baptism. It symbolises the cleansing of the person from all sin. The earliest Christians wore white to signify their union with Christ and their commitment to living a virtuous life. At Mass, the Priest wears a white alb which represents his baptismal garment. Explore the liturgical rites and identify the moment when this happens in each of the sacraments.
Describe, in your own words, the power and meaning of this gesture. Explore the sacramental purpose for each of these oils. Identify the times in your own faith journey when you have been anointed?
Which oil was used and why? Why do you think the presence of God is described in terms of brilliant light? How is light used in Baptism? During the baptismal ceremony, what are the words that accompany the receiving of the light? Also identify the words prayed as the white garment is placed on the newly baptised person. How do these prayers describe the mission bestowed on the new Christian? Write a short reflection bringing your life, your work, your hopes and dreams to the Eucharist in order to be transformed in Christ.

Home Contacts About Us. After completing the sacraments of Initiation a person is welcomed and able to participate in all aspects of the daily life of the church. The seven sacraments are primarily celebrations of life wherein the dynamics of words and actions become meaningfully alive.

The Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church
Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word. In Baptism we use your gift of water, which you have made a rich symbol of the grace you give us in this sacrament. Sacred Scripture sees it as "overshadowed" by the Spirit of God:

Как он выглядит - на фото. Быть может, я смогу его узнать. - Ну… - произнес голос. - Он очень, очень полный. Ролдан сразу понял. Он хорошо запомнил это обрюзгшее лицо. Человек, к которому он направил Росио.

На легком летнем костюме, как и на загорелой коже, не было ни морщинки. Его густые волосы имели натуральный песочный оттенок, а глаза отливали яркой голубизной, которая только усиливалась слегка тонированными контактными линзами. Оглядывая свой роскошно меблированный кабинет, он думал о том, что достиг потолка в структуре АНБ. Его кабинет находился на девятом этаже - в так называемом Коридоре красного дерева.
Но послушай: канадец сказал, что буквы не складывались во что-то вразумительное. Японские иероглифы не спутаешь с латиницей. Он сказал, что выгравированные буквы выглядят так, будто кошка прошлась по клавишам пишущей машинки.
