Divine Word Missionaries
The sacraments are the principal ways that we can obtain the supernatural life, without which no one can be saved. It is also through the sacraments that we grow in this life of grace, as it is also the sacraments that provide us with a means of restoring the life of God's friendship that we may have lost through grave sin.
Christ instituted the sacraments to give us the grace we need to reach heaven, to grow in His grace and regain His friendship if we have lost it through our disobedience to His will.
The sacraments are channels of divine grace. We come into this world without the grace needed to reach heaven. The sacraments are the means which Christ provided for the salvation of the human family.  Each of the seven sacraments has its own divinely intended purpose.
