Sacramentality is . . . essential to the Catholic tradition. It is grounded in the conviction that God's presence can be traced, is immanent in, persons, events, rituals, objects. This sense of presence pervades all creation, but can be found especially in the sacraments themselves, and among these, primarily in the Eucharist. Thus, participation in the sacraments themselves is a grace-filled event.
