Do the Catholics and the Orthodox have the same view of sacraments with receiving grace through them?

Therefore prepare yourself and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not be dismayed before their faces, Lest I dismay you before them.  For behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land...

I remember reading somewhere that the Roman Catholics believe our sacraments have grace but we're illicit or something to that effect.

Im actually not sure if there is a universal opinion from an Orthodox standpoint.

Depends on who you ask.

There is a huge difference between the Orthodox and the Latin understanding of what grace is. So I guess that they have a different understanding on the receiving of grace through the sacraments as well.
