"Msgr. Vaghi speaks out of his long pastoral experience in a way that helps the reader recognize that what is taking place in the sacramental sign is real. A delight to read and a joy to recommend." --Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington
"This book shows that the sacraments are truly a celebration, a celebration of Christ's love as real as the love he showed when he walked the earth. Prepare yourself for a breath of fresh spiritual air--the heart and beauty of encountering Christ in the sacraments comes alive in these pages." --Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight, Knights of Columbus
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The book is the second of a four part series examining the four pillars of the "Catechism of the Catholic Church." As such, Msgr. Vaghi quotes heavily from the recently published "United States Catholic Catechism for Adults." This is designed as a companion volume to that Catechism, but it functions equally well as a stand-alone study.
"In the sacraments, each of us encounters God." Msgr. Vaghi explores in great detail how we encounter God in Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. Each chapter includes questions for personal or group reflection as well as a prayer. There is so much to learn about the mystery and gift that is the seven sacraments. Msgr. Vaghi has done the Catholic Church a wonderful service in writing this book.
This is a wonderful stand-alone text for those desiring a greater understanding of these key milestones of the faith.
I had Amazon deliver a few copies directly to friends and, most memorably, to my teenage godson who had just completed Confirmation. Upon receiving the at-home delivery, my godson immediately sent me a thank you note on FaceBook. He declared that by just flipping through the pages during his first sitting, he had already discovered answers to his own nagging questions on his personal path of faith.
The text is delivered in a conversational manner which makes for an easy read by anyone 16 to 60.
