The Sacraments helped the Church to become catholic

January 21, 2010

More from Pelikan (pg. 27):

Both Baptism and the Lord’s Supper helped to make the church universal in its appeal and significance; but by being rooted in the life and death of the historical Jesus Christ, these sacraments also helped to preserve the church’s identity and to keep it from losing itself in the sacramentalism of the mystery-religions.  So it was that the sacraments helped the church to become catholic.
