The sacraments in marital imagery

By Luke Lancaster

The sacraments can be looked at in terms of Christ's marriage to the Church, which is so often spoken about in Scripture (Ex. Ephesians 5). Check this out:

The sacrament of Baptism is where we get hitched to Christ invisibly.

The sacrament of the Eucharist is the intimate part of the marriage, like our wedding night.

The sacrament of Confirmation is where we have our marriage strengthened.

The sacrament of Confession is where we admit that we suck at marriage.

The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick helps us heal and prepare for our face-to-face marriage to Christ.

The sacrament of Marriage is where we practice our face-to-face marriage to Christ at the end of time.

The sacrament of Holy Orders is where we imitate our husband, Christ, by loving His bride totally.
