Default Symbols for the 7 Sacraments for RCIA

Okay, so tonight DH and I are giving a review lesson on the 7 Sacraments...I need symbols for the following sacraments:

Reconciliation
Holy Orders (is it just oil?)
Holy Matrimony


I looked everything up in the Catechism, but some are more obvious than others (ie. Baptism - water, candle, etc.). I'm making flash cards for these and having them identify symbols to sacraments. I don't want to be wrong on this .

Baptism is of course water, Paschal candle, Oil of Catechumens.

Confirmation would be Sacred Chrism and a Bishop

Anointing of the Sick would be Oil of the Infirm and a purple stole

Reconciliation would be the purple stole and a crucifix

Marriage would be two rings and a card with the vows.

Holy Orders would be the Book of the Gospels, a Crucifix

Holy Communion would be a crucifix and a Host and Chalice

These would be the symbols for these Sacraments not specifically limited to the Matter used in them.

Default Re: Symbols for the 7 Sacraments for RCIA

I'm trying to understand the question. Are you looking for the visible signs? If so, I'll share what I know...


Baptism - water, oil
Confirmation - oil and the laying of hands by the Bishop
Eucharist - bread and wine
Reconciliation - the priest giving absolution
Matrimony - rings, vows... or on a radical note, the couple themselves exchanging vows
Holy Orders - the candidate kneeling and the laying of hands by the Bishop
Annointing of the sick - holy oil

I'm not completely sure with Holy Orders and Annointing of the sick though.
If these aren't the answers you're looking for then... I guess I don't know the answer.
