Form, Sacramental

Additional Links

A theological term used to designate the determining element of a sacrament. The form is composed of words pronounced by the minister over the matter, thereby determining the matter and raising it to the dignity of a sacramental sign, capable of giving grace from the institution of Christ; e.g., "I baptize thee," pronounced as the minister pours water on the head of a person.
