Administration of the Sacraments

Resource Toolbox

The act of the minister in conferring the sacraments on the individual faithful for the sanctification of souls. Since the whole efficacy of the sacraments is from Christ, the minister administers them in His name and by authority. As the chief means of sanctification, they are to be administered to the faithful frequently, while the faithful on their part are to receive them with reverence and holy dispositions.
