The Science of the Sacraments can be defined as ‘a new idea of Church worship’ for it presents a clairvoyant description of the inner or invisible side of the traditional Catholic rites.

The central theme of the book is that a sacrament is ‘an outer and visible sign of an inner, spiritual grace’. The author examines the far-reaching effect of ceremonies like the Holy Eucharist, which benefit not only those attending it but also the community at large with its strong radiation of peace.

The book is of great value for those interested to know the hidden realities of life.
