What are the sacraments? Why do we do what we do in the confessional or at Mass? What’s the point of baptizing a baby? The Bible and the Sacraments unveil the mystery of the sacraments and their foundation in Sacred Scripture.
Join author, speaker and St. Paul Center Executive Director, Matthew Leonard, in this stunning, awe-inspiring video series, in which the power of the sacraments come alive in a personal, new way through the following 11 lessons.

Supplemental readings: Swear to God by Scott Hahn is the book upon which this study is based.
