Sinopsis: A comprehensive introduction to the three sacraments that mark our entry into the fullness of the Christian life: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), and the Eucharist.
Baptism, Confirmation, and the Holy Eucharist: a theological exploration and a spiritual celebration!
In Theophany and Sacraments of Initiation, you ll find a comprehensive introduction to the three sacraments that mark our entry into the fullness of the Christian life: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), and the Eucharist.
Overflowing with love and gratitude, Archbishop Joseph Raya explains how the sacraments allow us to experience the presence of God. Then he discusses each of these sacraments in turn, through the prism of the Feast that the Western Church calls Epiphany and the Eastern Church Theophany. He shows why exorcism has a place in Baptism; how Baptism enables us to enter the Kingdom of God; the effects of Confirmation in giving us access to the gifts of the Holy Spirit; how the Eucharist is a participation in Christ s sacrifice; and how the Church came to understand the Trinity, the Incarnation, redemption, and the divinization of the individual Christian. He also illuminates many other key elements of these sacraments. With a keen awareness of the implications of God s sacramental presence, he even explores the spiritual meaning of the universe.
Finally, Archbishop Joseph unfolds the Nicene Creed as a spiritual text, awakening you to riches within it that most likely you never knew were there. This book is no dry theological exposition! Instead, it s a celebration of the mercy and compassion of the God who so loved the world that He gave us His Son and left us these sacramental means of growing closer to Him.
About the Author: Archbishop Joseph Raya is a priest and bishop of the Melkite Catholic Church, and former Archbishop of Akka, Haifa, Nazareth and all Galilee. He now lives in Combermere, Ontario, Canada with the Madonna House Apostolate founded by Catherine Doherty.
