Fr. Louis Guardiola, C.P.M.
The grace conferred by the valid and fruitful reception of the seven sacraments. It may be one or more of several kinds.
1. Sanctifying grace is communicated in Baptism, Penance and the Anointing of The Sick when needed.
2. Sanctifying Grace is always increased when a sacrament is received in the state of grace.
3. Actual grace is given by all the sacraments, either actually at the time of reception, or also by title as a person actually needs help.
4. the sacramental character is indelibly imprinted on the soul in Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders.
5. A distinctive sacramental grace is imparted by each of the seven sacraments, corresponding to their respective purpose in the supernatural life of the soul. See also actual grace, efficacious grace, grace, habitual grace, justifying grace, sanating grace, sanctifying grace. Sufficient grace.
