The Seven Sacraments of the Church
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church # 1210 "Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation), healing (Penance and Anoininting of the Sick), and mission (Holy Orders and Matrimony) to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life. "
