THE SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH     

 * taken from CCC

[1210] Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven:

Baptism,
Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony.

The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life:[1]  they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.

[1] Cf. St. Thomas Aquinas, STh III, 65, 1.
