From a bestselling Catholic author! A brief handbook on the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church: baptism, confirmation, reconciliation, marriage, the Eucharist, ainting of the sick, and holy orders. Includes n-Catholic traditions of the sacramental life as well! An historical perspective from ancient traditions to the present. A recent endorsement: I have to say that of the many books I have read (having multiple degrees in theology -including my Doctorate from Columbia University) your They Bore the Wounds of Christ: The Mystery of the Sacred Stigmata... is one of my all time favorites. In fact t only do I continue to refer to it, but there are certain passages that you explain that could only be attributable to infused divine inspiration. Please continue to write ... Peace, Deacon Mike Vicinanza.
