Sacraments are special moments of direct connection with God that leave a holy mark on you, whether you intend it to or not.  Sacraments cause the things they symbolize to happen; they bring those invisible things about, “coaxing” them to manifest. 

Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Matrimony, Holy Orders (Ordination to Religious Service) and Anointing of the Sick.
