Father Banka’s Enlightening Facts
The Seven Sacraments of our Faith
First of all, think about the word “sacrament.” It is “a sign of that which is sacred.” It is a celebration of our journey with God. Most importantly, a sacrament is not some ritual that we must do for God; it is truly one of God’s most blessed gifts to us!
The seven sacraments are of three different types. Sacraments of Initiation:
3. Eucharist Sacraments of Healing: 4. Reconciliation
5. Anointing of the Sick Sacraments of Service: 6. Marriage
7. Holy Orders
Receiving one of the sacraments can be a life-changing moment. We hold on to that moment and then grow in faith by daily prayer and devotion, reading scripture, and of course by attending Mass, where you will encounter the risen Christ!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia! God bless,
Fr. Yesobu Banka
