This a beautifully illustrated book that highlights and explains the Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church: Baptism, Confirmation, Penance, Holy Eucharist, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.
Each sacrament is explained in easy to understand prose, and supported by quotes from the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings of the Saints. It also includes various stories from different persons from various perspectives, all with a love and veneration of the sacraments. Each of these elements adds to the beauty and deep dimension of the sacraments.
This books is colorful, exquisitely illustrated and will make a lovely coffee table book or perfect gift, just interesting and long enough to hold the attention of readers of almost any age.
