Sacraments are outward signs of inward grace, instituted by Christ for our sanctification (Catechismus concil. Trident., n. 4, ex St. Augustine, “De Catechizandis rudibus”).
From St. Thomas we have the short but very expressive definition: The sign of a sacred thing in so far as it sanctifies men – “Signum rei sacrae in quantum est sanctificans homines” (III.60.2).

http://CatholicHack.com/ It was a great honor for me to give this talk at ONE ministry — ” An Evening of Praise and Worship” in Houston, Texas. With the gift of the presence of Christ comes the task to be his martyrs, His witnesses, to HIS brethren to the ends of the earth. Let us stop looking up and storing up, and begin living up to our mission to live for Christ today, learning our faith, living our faith, and sharing our faith.
