Millions of Christians are abandoning their churches to become
spiritual seekers, but now find themselves adrift. Without the church
what do we believe in? Where do we look for the Sacred in our lives?

The
seed of an answer can be found in the Roman Catholic sacraments, but
with a shift in focus from rites and rituals to human experience.
It’s not baptism, it’s the birth of a child that is holy. It’s not the
wedding ceremony, it’s the sublime oneness we feel in the arms of our
best-beloved that lifts us into the realm of the Divine.

Seven
Sacraments for Everyone maps the roads that lead to these
out-of-this-world experiences and into the heartland of the Sacred. By
acknowledging these moments of Mystery and teaching our children to
respect them, we will find the clues to a universal moral code on which
to build a healthier, more meaningful world.
