I felt that I had a pretty good understanding of the sacraments when I began this book and it did not shake that conclusion. I did, however gain new insights from the explanations and quotes from the theologians. I had never heard of Revelation consisting of the Book of Scripture, of which I was aware, and the Book of Nature, in which God reveals himself in creation. It makes sense ,but I will now look on the world with a greater appreciation. The quote from St. Augustine that God created us without us, but he will not save us without us illustrates the crucial nature of our cooperation with God’s grace. The speculation that Jesus may have set up an “appointment” with Mary Magdalene for after the Resurrection helps us appreciate that in God’s Providence there are no mere coincidences.
“The Sacraments” provides both the basics for the novice and depth for the educated layman. I found it to be a tome to be read, put down and contemplated before starting the next section. Give it the time it deserves and you will be rewarded.
