Video Reflections of the Sacraments

We conclude our video reflection on the sacraments this week. Today, we look at the second Sacrament of Vocation, the Sacrament of Holy Orders. In this video we learn what holy orders is all about and what takes place during the Rite of Ordination.

As we continue our refection on the sacraments, the last set of sacraments are called Sacraments of Commitment or Vocation and there are two of them in the Church (Marriage and Holy Orders.) Sadly, fewer and fewer couples are choosing the Sacrament of Marriage in our day and age. As such, they are missing (among other things) the graces that God gives to couples to live marriage and family life. You can learn more about why Catholics should be married in the Church by watching THIS.

Continuing with our video reflection, we look at the second Sacrament of Healing, the Sacrament of the Sick. Often times this sacrament is misunderstood and people fail to receive it when they are sick. This short video helps explain what this sacrament is all about and who should receive it.

As we continue to look at the Sacrament of Reconciliation, I want to share this second part of Confession 101. In this video we look at the four steps that take place when going to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. It's a great refresher about how to use the Sacrament.
We look at the Sacrament of Reconciliation as one of the Sacraments of Healing in the Church. Here is another video on this beautiful sacrament. Confession 101 - part 1, looks at the initial reservations about reconciliation that Catholics have today and how best to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation in our lives.

In this next set of videos on the sacraments, we look at the Sacraments of Healing (Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick.) In the Sacrament of Reconciliation God gives us the gift of pardon and peace. Learn more about why we confess our sins.

Concluding our study of the Sacraments of Initiation, this third video examines the Sacrament of Confirmation and helps us understand why we are confirmed and what it means to be a fully initiated member of the Catholic Church.

The Sacrament of the Eucharist and examine the question of how we receive. Since the Eucharist is “the source and submit of our Christian lives” it's important that we continue to deepen our understanding and appreciation of this most precious gift.
