Catechetical Sessions on Liturgy and the Sacraments
By Christine Schmertz Navarro, Laurie Delgatto-Whitten, Mary Shrader and Therese Brown
Catechetical Sessions on Liturgy and the Sacraments begins by familiarizing participants with the nature of liturgy and the liturgical year. An introduction to the properties of signs, symbols, and rituals sets the groundwork for studying individual Sacraments. Four sessions address the Sacraments of Initiation, two sessions cover the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, and the final session covers the Sacraments at the service of Communion. The sessions share some of the history of the Sacraments, their meaning, the significance of symbols, and the nature of the rites. The participants are invited to actively study the Sacraments, to make connections between the Sacraments and their own lives, to reflect prayerfully on the meaning of the Sacraments, and to take some Sacrament-related actions.
