Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.      Romans 12:2

No se conformen a esta época, sino sean transformados por la renovación de su mente, para que puedan discernir cuál es la voluntad de Dios, qué es lo bueno, lo agradable y lo perfecto.

Romanos 12:2

The seven sacraments are drawn from the love that Jesus has
for everyone. This is shown in his life, passion, death, and resurrection. This love is shared with us by the Holy Spirit in the sacraments instituted by Christ though the Church.

The sacramental liturgies are an outward sign of an inward grace by expressing our union with God during seven significant life stages. They communicate that, God is always present with us in life, so that we come to know God’s grace is also immanent.

The liturgy of each sacrament is formed by words and gestures that explain what God is doing in us. The elements we use are water, bread, wine and oil. These help us be present to the divine love of God, who freely chooses to share his grace through them.

Jesus is known as the Christ. Jesus is fully human and fully divine. Therefor, the sacraments too have a human and a divine nature.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process established for the universal Church for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation — Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist. This initiation process also involves a parish community experiencing a renewal in faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Church. The Rite speaks of conversion as a “spiritual journey.” Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus and the Church he founded, this journey takes place through distinct stages over a period of time suitable to bring about a thorough catechesis, significant experience of the parish

community, and commitment to the liturgical and moral life of the Catholic faithful. The RCIA process is a restoration of the ancient catechumenate, arising within the first three centuries following the era of the apostles. It was the early Church’s way of Evangelization in Roman Empire. The Second Vatican Council called for the restoration and use of this venerable and powerful method of initiation for the worldwide Church.
