The Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church

The strong relationship between the Bible and the sacraments of the Catholic Church is generally accepted in theology. This monograph approaches this relationship from a synchronic perspective. This fresh perspective opens up new windows providing insight into similarities found in the various rites, in and outside the Catholic Church. For example, the basic biblical pattern of the celebration of the Eucharist / Last Supper appears to be standard. It also poses critical questions regarding sacramental theology in general, especially to the problematic equation of the proper name Jesus and the title Christ.

The Defence of the Seven Sacraments (in Latin, Assertio Septem Sacramentorum) is a theological treatise from 1521, written by King Henry VIII of England. Henry started to write it in 1519 while he was reading Martin Luther's attack on indulgences. By June of that year, he had shown it to Thomas Wolsey, but it remained private until three years later, when the earlier manuscript became the first two chapters of the Assertio, the rest consisting of new material relating to Luther's De Captivitate Babylonica. It is believed that Thomas More was involved in the composition of the piece. Author J. J. Scarisbrick describes the work as "one of the most successful pieces of Catholic polemics produced by the first generation of anti-Protestant writers." It went through some twenty editions in the sixteenth century and, as early as 1522, had appeared in two different German translations. It was dedicated to Pope Leo X, who rewarded Henry with the title Fidei Defensor (Defender of the Faith) in October 1521 (a title revoked following the king's break with the Catholic Church in the 1530s, but re-awarded to his heir by the English Parliament).

BLISS is a faith-provoking book. Scripture says in Ephesians 2: 8, By the grace of God you have been saved through faith. Faith is the activator and receptor of the graces of salvation; without faith we are at the risk of losing the grace of salvation. Romans 10: 17 says, Faith comes by hearing the word of Christ. The quality of a believers faith is proportional to the amount of Gods Word heard, believed, and practised. The sacraments are treasures and containers of the powers of salvation; they contain power for forgivingness, healing, deliverance, freedom, victory, breakthrough, and sundry favours. Faith is the ability and disposition to receive and enjoy these blessings. Faith is necessary for the experience of the awesome powers of the sacraments. Faith releases the sacraments from habitual and conditioned confinement to mere ritual to a life-giving cistern of reality. BLISS is a handy, helpful, and practical book of faith that leads all Christians to tap the abundant powers in the sacraments. BLISS is about getting more and all out of the sacraments as it ought to be.

Are There Really Seven Sacraments?

Unlike what happened in the West, in the Christian Orthodox country of Greece, whose spiritual state inspired this book, it is not easy to bring the Evangelion regarding repentance, forgiveness, and salvation by Grace alone. As far back as 1949, the Church reacted vehemently to Christian publications, which relying on Biblical evidence, argued that man needs to go directly to the Throne of God, repent, and only then be able to receive the free gift of forgiveness. To this day, theChurch’s stand remains the same. In his book dealing with the Sacrament of Penance,Spyros Filos explains for everyone – especially the Eastern Orthodox and the Roman Catholics – the simple truth about the Reformation. He believes that the sincere, evangelical brokenness of man before God and the submission to free forgiveness is offered by the Father to all who take off the mantle of their own worthiness and put on that of Christ, who took upon Himself the sin of humankind, paying for it in full to give everyone the free gift of salvation. The supporting arguments come from the original Greek text of the NT, Church Fathers, Local and Ecumenical Councils, The Holy Canons, and a rich list of references.

This newly revised and enlarged edition of John Witte's authoritative historical study explores the interplay of law, theology, and marriage in the Western tradition. Witte uncovers the core beliefs that formed the theological genetic code of Western marriage and family law. He explores the systematic models of marriage developed by Catholics, Lutherans, Calvinists, Anglicans, and Enlightenment thinkers, and the transformative influence of each model on Western marriage law. In addition, he traces the millennium-long reduction of marriage from a complex spiritual, social, contractual, and natural institution into a simple private contract with freedom of entrance, exercise, and exit for husband and wife alike. This second edition updates and expands each chapter and the bibliography. It also includes three new chapters on classical, biblical, and patristic sources.
