Guided by the Holy Spirit, the Church recognizes the existence of Seven Sacraments instituted by the Lord. They are the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist), the Sacraments of Healing (Penance and the Anointing of the Sick), and the Sacraments at the Service of Communion (Marriage and Holy Orders).
(from the USCCB)
Through the Sacraments, God shares his holiness with us so that we, in turn, can make the world holier. (USCCB)
Learning about Liturgy:
Liturgy - the work of the People
In the New Testament the word "liturgy" refers not only to the celebration of divine worship but also to the proclamation of the Gospel and to active charity. (CCC 1070)
