The saving words and deeds of Jesus Christ are the foundation of what he would communicate in the Sacraments through the ministers of the Church. Guided by the Holy Spirit, the Church recognizes the existence of Seven Sacraments instituted by the Lord.
The Sacraments of Initiation are Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist. The Sacraments of Healing are Penance and Anointing of the Sick. The Sacraments at the Service of Communion are Matrimony and Holy Orders.
