Sacraments are specific signs of god’s special relationship with us. They are both a gift from god and call to serve god and others. Celebrating the sacrament is also one of the most common and visible expressions of catholic life. By receiving the sacraments, Catholics build up their relationships with god. Here are some examples of how the sacraments are celebrated.
The Latin word sacrementum meant a holy oath made in the presence of the god. The early Christians began to use the word to describe the holy moments that Jesus Christ had chosen to be with them. Sacraments are visible actions but they also have deeper meaning and supernatural power, which is part of the mystery of god.
