We say that: "sacraments were instituted by Christ to give grace." But what if grace does not need to be "given," on various separate moments, but is in fact already with us -- everywhere? What if we could simply accept that life is holy and that our acceptance of this and bearing witness to it is sacrament? What would help us do that? What might prevent us from doing that? During our time together we will explore the above observations and questions more deeply for our own growth and spiritual transformation.
