Sacraments:  Channels of God’s Grace Sacraments of Service

“Two other sacraments, Holy Orders and Matrimony, are directed towards the salvation of others; if they contribute as well to personal salvation, it is through service to others that they do so.  They confer a particular mission in the Church and serve to build up the People of God.”   (United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, ​1534).

In this presentation, Fr. Jeff continues his series on the Sacraments.  He talks about how our understanding of Marriage and Ordination focuses on service to others, not just those receiving these sacraments.  Here are the slides for this presentation.
