This is a terrific educational video (just 2 minutes long) about the Sacraments, http://vimeo.com/20285898. A super-easy to understand, brief video explaining why there are 7 Sacraments and how they relate to the 7 conditions of physical life. The explanation in this video is from the great Archbishop Fulton Sheen.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines a sacrament as "an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace given unto us, ordained by Christ himself, as a means whereby we receive the same, and a pledge to assure us thereof." In short, a Sacrament is a sacred rite recognized as being of particular importance and significance to our faith.
