The sacraments, instituted by Christ, as conduits of divine grace, are surpassing gifts of God. The sacraments bring a divine, an enlivening, and renewing presence. St. Paul was the first to praise and to call for the greatest reverence towards these holy gifts . In this book the reader will find a collection of sermons and homiletic essays and may find a distant and yet earnest echo of the Apostle to the Nations.
