Thomas Aquinas’ view of the Christian doctrine is a summons to respond to God and a summons to a way of life, and his view on this is in essence contained in his teaching on faith, hope, and charity. But he also has other things to say about the details of Christian life, and some of these are looked at in this chapter, which examines the sacraments – the means by which faith, hope, and charity are perfected. The first part of the chapter looks at sacraments in general, and the last part looks at the Eucharist itself.
