Of course it's a noun -- sacrum indeed. I was not suggesting that Latin treats it as an adjective and silently assumes a noun, merely that English requires a noun (things) since in English sacred is an adjective and sacreds is odd. But (1) it can't be rites, because you can't carry them! (2) Vessels is too narrow: sacrum just means "sacred object".
