Course description: Knowing the catechetical aspects of the sacraments is essential for Catholics. Yet, for those who desire to go deeper into the understanding of their sacramental life, the theological underpinnings serve as a gateway to a poignant vision of Christianity. Therefore, this course will demonstrate how all of the sacraments are connected to Christ’s gift of Himself on the Cross and to the Trinity’s eternal exchange of life and love which we receive in every sacrament. Catechetical terms such as ex opere operato and ex opere operantis, matter and form, and grace will come alive for the student as he/she grows in theological understanding. With a broad stroke, we will cover each sacrament’s theological richness.
Course goal: The student will come to see the why’s behind the Sacraments and, thus, be enriched in his/her life of faith.
Course outline: To be announced
Homework: None
