“By the grace of God you have been saved through faith.” Faith is the activator and receptor of the graces of salvation; without faith people are at the risk of losing the grace of salvation. In his publication BLISS (Blessed Life in Seven Sacraments), Rev. Fr. Oluoma Chinenye J. pens a faith-provoking book that leads all Christians to tap the abundant powers in the sacraments.
This book highlights the real essence of the sacraments and provokes awareness on the treasures, riches and wealth hidden in them. It calls for every catholic to embrace and explore them to the fullest. The Rev. Fr. Oluoma takes up each sacrament, tracing its origin and its development. He believes that the power within them will be unlocked through faith that comes from the word of God.
At baptism, one is immersed in the water and emerges washed, clean as God’s life of grace is infused into the baptised. The sacrament of confirmation developed when bishops went around confirming those who had been baptised. Regarding the Eucharist, he notes that condemnation came through eating; salvation equally comes through eating of the body and blood of Christ. Taking the sacrament of the sick, he notes that Vatican II changed the name from extreme unction to the sacrament of the sick.
If one approaches the sacraments with deep and strong faith, the effects will certainly be so abundant and the efficacy so great. Through this work, one can better understand and celebrate the holy sacraments, making it even more meaningful.
BLISS (Blessed Life in Seven Sacraments) presents the seven sacraments in an enlightening and enriching way. It is filled with insight and inspiration, and demonstrates a lot of creativity and originality that will endear the Catholics into the essential part of the sacraments. BLISS helps you to experience the inward grace of God in the sacraments in your routine life.
