Meeting Jesus In The Sacraments
Meeting Jesus in the sacraments, is a book based on the different sacraments you see throughout the Catholic faith. Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist, Holy Matrimony, Reconciliation, Holy Orders and the Anointing of the Sick are the sacraments you see illustrated throughout the book and how these sacraments relate in our life.
