Drawing from the "Catechism of the Catholic Church," the "U.S. Catholic Catechism for Adults," and the writings of Benedict XVI and John Paul II, Msgr. Peter Vaghi's easy-to-use resource considers each of the sacraments from a personal, communal, and social perspective. The chapters explore the sacraments as a whole and examine the scriptural foundation, the history, and the symbolism of each.
At a time when Mass attendance, Confession, and the celebration of Catholic weddings are all declining, the clarity and accessibility of Msgr. Peter Vaghi's writing on the meaning of these celebrations, complemented by questions for reflection and prayer, makes "The Sacraments We Celebrate" a vital resource for any Catholic seeking to understand these central actions of the faith.
