The sacraments are a precious, seven-faceted jewel embedded in the heart of the Catholic faith. Yet, while believers readily acknowledge the centrality of these rites to the faith, they may be a bit fuzzy when it comes to explaining them. That's where this book comes to the rescue

Liturgy 101: Sacraments and Sacramentals provides a concise and easy-to-follow overview of the liturgy that will immerse you into the Church's teaching and practice of the seven sacraments. The author, respected Catholic scholar and educator Daniel G. Van Slyke, grounds the book in Sacred Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and the rites with which the Church celebrates the sacraments.

Following a helpful introductory chapter that explains the vocabulary used to discuss worship, Liturgy 101 explores the seven sacraments one by one. Each chapter explains, in an accessible manner, the sacrament's origins, how and by whom it is celebrated, and what it accomplishes. Van Slyke also addresses frequently asked pastoral, practical, and canonical questions concerning the celebration of the sacraments.

Liturgy 101 will empower you to more fruitfully participate in sacred liturgy by helping you to understand, appreciate, love, and celebrate the sacraments that Christ has entrusted to the Church.
