The Seven Sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony) are the ordinary means by which God dispenses sanctifying grace to his people. The Sacraments: Source of Our Life in Christ by James Socias presents the theology of each sacrament and its implications for living the Christian life.
The Didache (DID-uh-kay) Series has beautiful illustrations throughout.
