Disc 4 includes: Lesson Eight: Reconciled to God - The story of the Prodigal Son helps us discover the meaning of sin, and how we are forgiven and reconciled to the Father through the sacrament of Penance. By sinning, we squander our inheritance. But from the beginning, God has always provided a path to loving reconciliation. (27 minutes) Lesson Nine: Spiritual Healing - While given in times of physical danger, Anointing of the Sick is not specifically concerned with bodily health. Its primary purpose is spiritual healing. It is a completion of the holy anointing we received at Baptism and Confirmation (CCC 1523). It’s preparation for the final journey to our Father’s house. (26 minutes). The seven sacraments are the heart of our Catholic faith. But do we really understand them? Do we truly grasp the incredible beauty of these amazing channels of grace and their life-changing power? This program is unlike any other study on the sacraments. It looks at the basic teaching of the Church as to their meaning and origin, but it goes further. It investigates the deeper mystery of the sacraments as illuminated by Sacred Scripture. The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes the sacraments as “the masterworks of God” in the new and everlasting covenant.” More than mere earthly rituals, they have the power to prepare us for eternal life. The Bible and the Sacraments is a dynamic video-based Bible study that explores the deeply scriptural roots of the Sacrament. By illuminating the relationship between the Old and the New Testaments and their connection to the rites of the Catholic Church, The Bible and the Sacraments reveals the sacramental nature of God’s saving plan for humanity. Join author, speaker and St. Paul Center vice president Matthew Leonard in this visually stunning series which penetrates the mystery of the sacraments, and reveals them as incredible “powers that come forth from the Body of Christ”. This program is based on the book “Swear To God: The Promise and Power of the Sacraments “by Dr. Scott Hahn.
