In this ten lecture series Andrew Wood takes you through the second part of the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: the Celebration of the Christian Mystery or the Sacraments. Like the first part of this threefold series, which dealt with the Creed, this second part was given as a live introductory course on the Catholic faith to beginners and those preparing for Baptism.
In this short and concise introduction Andrew takes you through the fundamentals of what the Catholic Church teaches concerning the celebration of the mystery of Christ through the Sacraments that Jesus has given to his Church. The course begins by looking at what the Church understands about the Liturgy and how all three persons of the Trinity are at work in the Church’s liturgy. After which Andrew guides you through each of the seven Sacraments showing what is essential for each and how the mystery of Christ is celebrated in and through them.
This series is a must for those wanting to understand the fundamentals of how the Catholic Faith is celebrated through the Church’s Sacraments and her liturgy.
