The Sacraments of Initiation are the three rites that introduce a person into the Christian Church, namely, Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. In his apostolic constitution Divinae consortium naturae on the sacrament of Confirmation, Pope Paul VI declared: "The sharing in the divine nature given to men through the grace of Christ bears a certain likeness to the origin, development, and nourishing of natural life. The faithful are born anew by Baptism, strengthened by the sacrament of Confirmation, and receive in the Eucharist the food of eternal life."
