character, sacramental

   "Character" (from the Greek charaktēr, meaning "an engraved mark") refers to the indelible spiritual mark, which is the permanent effect of the sacraments of Baptism (see CCC 1272-1274), Confirmation (see CCC1305-1305), and Holy Orders (see CCC 1581-1583). Because these sacramental characters permanently configure aperson to Christ and give a specific responsibility in the Church, these sacraments are never repeated.
