Sacraments are sacred, visible signs of God's loving grace and presence to   humanity. The Roman Catholic community honors seven ritual sacraments.       In the Sacraments of Initiation -- Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist -- new   disciples are immersed in the waters of baptism, confirmed with oil and     nourished with the Body and Blood of Christ. The Sacraments of Healing:      Anointing of the Sick and Reconciliation -- offer Jesus' healing of body,   mind and spirit to those who are ill and reconciliation & forgiveness of sin. In the Sacraments of Vocation -- Holy Orders and Matrimony -- are empowered to live out their Baptismal call in a holy way of life.
