As part of my final steps in RCIA before initiation, Fr. Ramon wants me to write a report on the Sacraments (or, in Spanish, "los misteriosos santos"). I will post what I've got one part a time until around the Triduum (Thursday-Sunday, March 25-27). The multi-part report is titled "Signs and Wonders: The Holy Sacraments in the Life of One Unholy Christian Man". In it, I have tried to emphasize the personal, psychological, phenomenological -- and perhaps even emotional -- meaning of the Mysteries for me, rather than leaning on my usual crutch of abstraction and intellectuality.
I welcome all edifying comments and/or questions.
