Image Title: Seven Sacraments

Description: Jesus stands with cross in hand atop a large fountain, blood pouring forth from his wounded side, which is distributed through the fountain to seven triangular compartments, each bearing a scene of one of the sacraments. The Latin superscription reads, "The institution of the salvific seven sacraments," and the text below, "How much power do the holy gifts have to keep us in Christ? Power not of ourselves buys the reward of health.".
