Sacraments

"Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase healing and mission to the Christian life: they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life."- Catechism of the Catholic Church - 1210

There are three sacraments of Christian initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation); two sacraments of healing (Reconciliation and Anointing of the faithful (Marriage and Holy Orders). "This order, while not the only one possible, does allow one to see that the sacraments form an organic whole in which each particular sacrament has its own vital place. In this organic whole, the Eucharist occupies a unique place as the "Sacrament of sacraments": "all the other sacraments are ordered to is as to their end." - Catechism of the Catholic Church - 1211
