The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch. — CCC 1324

Updating the Sacramentals page layout and more content

…still a work in progress…

“Sacramentals are sacred signs which in a sense imitate the sacraments. The signify certain effects, especially spiritual ones, which are obtained through the intercession of the Church.” “They prepare the faithful to receive the fruit of the sacraments and sanctify various circumstances of life.”

Sacramentals may consist of material things or actions. “Among the sacramentals, blessings occupy an important place. They include both praise of God for his works and gifts, and the Church’s intercession for men, that they may be able to use God’s gifts according to the spirit of the Gospel.” Some other sacramentals are: the Sign of the Cross, use of holy water, blessed rosaries, crucifixes, scapulars and medals. Exorcism (expulsion of demons) is also a sacramental.
