No. A sacrament is a sensible sign, instituted by Christ, communicating grace and inward sanctification to the soul. The essential elements are

]institution by Christ during his visible stay on earth
*]a sensibly perceptible rite that actually confers the grace it symbolizes
[/LIST]
Latin *sacramentum
, oath, solemn obligation; from sacrare, to set apart as sacred, consecrate.
