~St. Cyril of Jerusalem
How does this quote speak to me specifically today?
… Catechism of the Catholic Church says, “The sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us” (CCC 1131). The sacrament’s grace is not dependent on the minister’s virtue or merit, nor is it dependent on the one who receives the sacrament. The grace is given “by the very fact of the action’s being performed” (CCC1128).
