Sacraments are the life of the Catholic Church around which everything else, prayer, liturgy, meditations and daily living, revolves. There are seven Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. The Catholic Church believes and teaches that all seven Sacraments were instituted by Jesus Christ during his life on earth.
