Sacred Passages:

Bringing the Sacraments to Life

By Bert Ghezzi ’69Ph.D. (Doubleday)


The sacraments—baptism, communion, confirmation, marriage, holy orders, eucharist, reconciliation and anointing of the sick—bring one to a personal relationship with God. Ghezzi, who received a Ph.D. from Notre Dame in 1969, uses scripture, the writing of the saints, personal stories and practical teachings to explain the relevance of the sacraments as Catholics travel through life.
