In Sacramental Theology, Vorgrimler describes a dogmatic approach to the sacraments where he follows St. Thomas Aquinas in relating the sacraments directly to Christ but he also expands on the role of the Church. Sacramental activity thus encompasses all of God's activity towards the Church because it always involves the elements of humanity and mystery / sacred. Vorgrimler is conscious of the distinction between sacramental activity and sacraments and understands the seven sacraments as existing objectively in the world, though not on their own grounds but always in relation to Christ and the Church.
