What are the 7 sacraments and explain each? Sacraments are efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, through which Divine life is given. There are seven Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony, and Holy Orders.
What did Martin Luther say about the sacraments? At the beginning of his career as a reformer, Luther understood the sacraments as having three distinct components: “the sign, the significance of it, and the faith.”53 Most important, however, was faith. Whoever approached the sacrament had to believe, because it was not the sacrament but rather faith that justified.
