[bibledrb]Dear Friends in Christ,
I'm a final year student of a Bachelor of Theology Programme and is in the process of completing my dissertation which is on Christ as the Primordial Sacrament. Therefore, I seek your valuable inputs, which even could be your original thinking, that would help me in completing my presentation.
Thank you once again and looking forward to your valuable contributions.
Servant in Christ,
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
Latin *sacramentum, oath, solemn obligation; from sacrare, to set apart as sacred, consecrate.
