The Sacraments of Ongoing Conversion begins with a look at the two vocational sacraments, marriage and orders, before examining three sacraments that most foster ongoing conversion in all Christians: reconciliation, anointing, and the Eucharist. The chapters on marriage show how conversion both humanizes and Christianizes human sexuality. A history of the marriage rites and of the theological controversies that have surrounded marriage provides the context for a foundational re-thinking of the meaning of Christian marriage and of the responsibilities of Christian spouses. The discussion on orders examines the generic responsibilities of all ordained leaders as well as the responsibilities specific to bishops, priests, and deacons. A detailed commentary of the sacramental rites of ordination throw new light on the meaning of priestly identity and ministry. It also clarifies the relationship between the priesthood of the laity and that of the ordained. The concluding discussion on reconciliation, anointing, and the Eucharist first situates each of these rituals in a biblical and historical setting before arguing how each contributes something distinctive to ongoing Christian conversion.
