Catholic, XVIII

In the sacraments of the Church the transcendence and the nearness of God collide. And it is in this collision of the mystical and the physical, in this incarnation of the other and the familiar, that we feel the hand of Christ upon us, uniting us to Himself.

They, the sacraments, are the activity of the whole Christ, the head and the body acting as one, giving and receiving.
