What are sacramentals? Amazing Graces The Blessings of Sacramentals by Julie Dortch Cragon hopes to answer curiosity and clear up questions. Sacramentals are such things as medals, scapulars, candles, holy water, rosaries, etc. In her book Dortch Cragon discusses some of these most popular sacramentals and talks about what they are, what their history is in the Church, what the difference is between sacraments and sacramentals and how sacramentals are important channels of grace in the world today. Amazing Grace uses personal stories to show how using particular sacramentals can increase one's faith and provide special help and blessings during difficult times. Rituals using sacramentals can help a person focus more completely when meditating on a particular spiritual practice. For instance, candles are a reminder that Jesus is the light of the world and brings light and life to those who turn to Him. Oils used to bless a person give a lasting fragrance and the scent may be seen to rise to the heavens. Amazing Grace shows how to use the sacramentals, how they help build a Catholic identity and how the sacramentals can give a sense of the presence of God in the life of the reader.
