Q. 1. Can you tell me, what are sacramentals?
A. 1. Sacramentals are holy things or actions that the Catholic Church uses to obtain spiritual and temporal favours for us from God through her intercession.
Sacramentals obtain God's graces two different ways. First, it does so through the prayers of the Church that are offered for those who make use of the sacramentals. Secondly, it does so through the devotion that they inspire.
