Every Sacrament is an encounter with God. As Catholics we have a wonderful opportunity to find God in the seven sacraments: Baptism, Penance, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Matrimony, Holy Unction and Holy Orders or Priesthood.
Baptism opens the way to Christ, in this sacrament we are placed in the body of Christ, normally when we are infants. This is our initiation in the life of Christ.
Confirmation is a sacrament that renews our commitment with Christ having reached the age of reason. We receive the Holy Spirit from the Bishop through the laying of his hands. This sacrament is similar to the baptism of the Spirit which happens later on in life when we are committed to Christ and someone full of the Holy Spirit prays over us, normally in a charismatic prayer meeting or during a prayer of healing.
The Sacrament of Penance or Confession is one of the greatest sacraments. We confess our sins and receive absolution from the priest. It is necessary to be humble and confess our sins to a priest, he is anointed to have this power to forgive sins and that comes directly from Jesus who instituted the Priesthood on Holy Thursday at the last Supper, He also instituted the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Penance on the evening of His Resurrection when He appeared to the Apostles and gave them power to forgive sins. (Also to priests).
Jn 20:21-23
21 He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you.
22 When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost.
23 Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.
When people are very sick, they should call a priest to receive the Sacrament of the Holy Unction; many healings have taken place after this sacrament. This sacrament combines the forgiveness of sins, the laying of the hands and the anointing with holy oil consecrated on Holy Thursday during a special mass.
And the last of the sacraments is the sacrament of matrimony. Nowadays people are neglecting this sacrament, they are more interested in a legal document than being in the presence of God to commit their union and make this a holy union that will last.
