This course is an introduction to the study of sacraments and liturgy, wherein the faith of the church is realized and lived. Students will learn to expound the mystery at the heart of Christian liturgy by attending to its deep structures and to its historical forms, particularly as present in the Roman Rite. We will then study the seven sacraments as practiced and interpreted by the Church in successive periods of history. In light of this knowledge, we will explore pastoral ways of encouraging fuller participation in the liturgy today.
