Overview

The sacraments are at the heart of our life as Catholics, the way we celebrate together our continuing conversion and encounter with God. Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing, Marriage, and Holy Orders 'al are activities that require preparation to bring us to the fullness of our life in community and in Christ. Chapter by chapter, Father Lawrence Mick puts these core experiences into their historical and theological context, and illuminates the ways the sacraments bring us together as God's people. Ever conscious of the complex history of the church and its dynamic relationship to ritual, as well as the varied histories of human communities, Understanding the Sacraments Today is a book to be visited and revisited, a companion to the ongoing and repeated practices that nourish us.

Lawrence E. Mick, a priest in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, is a liturgical consultant and writer whose numerous books include Living Baptism Daly, published by Liturgical Press. He has also been active in parish, retreat, and campus ministries.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Pastoral musicians have a friend in this book. Each chapter can help connect the music and the music ministry to suitable service of the liturgy through easily understood reflection on the sacraments. For those rites not regularly celebrated—confirmation, penance, and anointing—a quick review of a chapter during the final preparation steps can help the music team do its job of fostering good and faithful celebrations that build up faith.
Pastoral Music

Fr. Lawrence E. Mick puts the core parts of our faith into their historical and theological context and illuminates the ways the Sacraments bring us together as God’s people. Scholarly and readable, the chapters take a sacrament each, and each builds the case for its importance and spirituality.
Crux

...a work suitable for individuals, catechists, pastors, and faith formation groups.
