Sacraments

The Catechism of the Catholic Church   defines the   sacraments as "efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the   Church , by which divine life is dispensed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament. 

They bear fruit in those who receive them with the required dispositions”. (1131)

The   Catechism of the Catholic Church   also states that Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Penance (or Reconciliation), Eucharist (or Holy Communion), Confirmation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders and Matrimony.
