"Meeting Jesus in the Sacraments" roots the sacraments as the definitive way Jesus remains present to the Church and the world today. It expresses concrete ways for understanding the sacraments, participating in their rites, and benefiting from their graces. The text is organized around the traditional definition of sacrament from the "Catechism of the Catholic Church". This definition is clarified by arranging the chapters around four dimensions of the sacrament: memorial, celebration, communion, and transformation. Through regular placement of "For Reflection" panels and assignments that focus on deeper research, developing a personal and communal prayer life, and active transformation of self and society, this text allows students to come to know Jesus through participation in the sacraments and the grace of their effects. Selections from Catholic blogs and profiles of saints offer a practical application of the sacrament to teenagers. (C. 2010) This text has been found in conformity with the "Catechism of the Catholic Church".
