Aparecida 153: Life In The Sacraments

The initiation sacraments, far from being a withdrawal from the world, is a means by which God communicates to disciples and draws us into a deeper communion with the Trinity:

153. This reality becomes present in our life by the work of the Holy Spirit, who also gives us light and life through the sacraments. By virtue of Baptism and Confirmation we are called to be missionary disciples of Jesus Christ and we enter into trinitarian communion in the Church, culminating in the Eucharist, which is fountain and project for the mission of the Christian. “The Holy Eucharist, then, brings Christian initiation to completion and represents the center and goal of all sacramental life.”(Sacrosanctum Concilium 17)

For deeper examination, an English translation of the 2007 document from the Aparecida Conference.
