We Catholics simply don't expect enough of the sacraments. Sometimes I think they must be the most underutilized power sources on the planet.—from Chapter One. The sacraments lie dormant for many because we don't understand them and don't know how to tap into their supernatural energy. Living the Sacraments weaves together Scripture, the writings of the saints, and personal stories to help us understand these seven gifts of the Church and experience their practical and spiritual rewards.
