Encountering Christ in the Sacraments – Nathaniel Hurd

June 14, 2019 No Comments

As he began to really study Catholicism, Nathaniel Hurd, who had grown up mostly agnostic, was pleasantly surprised to find out just how practical the sacramental theology of the Church was. The idea that Catholic Christianity wasn’t just agreeing to a set of ideas, but also encountering Jesus through the gifts of bread, wine, water and oil was an indication to Nathaniel that Christ was meant to be Lord of not just his mind and heart, but his body. And when he learned about the practicality of Confession, it gave him a sense that the Church was uniquely equipped to address the complexity of the human condition.
