Review: Catholic Sacraments: A Rich Source of Blessings

Catholic Sacraments: A Rich Source of BlessingsCatholic Sacraments: A Rich Source of Blessings by John F. Baldovin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book of short reflections on the various Sacraments of the Catholic Church. Each of the short reflections, only a few pages long, is written by leading scholars and they bring their expertise and scholarship to their particular subject matter.

Drawing on the components of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the liturgical rites of each of these Sacraments as the basis for these reflections, the reader is drawn a little deeper into the nature of the sacramental life of the Church.

A bonus inclusion, which opens the possibility of encouraging further thought and discussion, are the conversation questions at the end of each section. This book could be used in the context of a group exploring the sacraments through the use of these questions or, alternatively, they could be used by individuals to encourage further and deeper reflection.

Highly recommended.
