Product Description

Scapulars, candles, holy water, rosaries, relics, medals-these sacramentals are a profound grace to many, but still a mystery to some. In Amazing Graces, author Julie Dortch Cragon takes a look at the most popular sacramentals, explaining what a sacramental is, their history in the Church, the difference between a sacrament and a sacramental, and why sacramentals are still important channels of grace for you today. Using personal stories, Cragon shows you how sacramentals can increase your faith and provide tangible help and special blessings in times of difficulty.
