Episode 8 • 25m
"Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments." - CCC 1213
The Sacraments are always an encounter with the Holy Spirit and each and every time we come to the Sacraments the Holy Spirit is present. Often times when we think of the Holy Spirit and His work in the Sacraments we only think of Confirmation. This is great, but the Holy Spirit is present in all of them. In this segment we will look at how the Holy Spirit is present in the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and marriage and how this can impact your life.
