The Christian Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist

Front Cover
Paulist Press, 1987 - Religion - 249 pages
THE CHRISTIAN SACRAMENTS OF INITIATION brings together contemporary theological insights into the unity of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist which together form the introduction to Christian sacramental life. They express and make present the much deeper and more fundamental reality of Jesus as the prime sacrament and the Church as the fundamental sacramental expression in which all individual sacraments find their basis. Fr. Osborne presents the best biblical, ecumenical and modern sacramental thinking for creating a sacramental theology rooted in the thinking of the Second Vatican Council. It combines the theological with the important spiritual and liturgical dimensions of sacramental preparation, and is designed for those engaged both in teaching sacraments and in preparing others for their reception.
