SACRIFICE OF THE MASS

Sacrifice is the offering of a victim by a priest to God alone, in the testimony of his being the sovereign Lord of all things.

The Blessed Sacrament is not only a sacrament, it is also a sacrifice.

The sacrifice of the new law is the Holy Mass

 

Holy Mass:- is the sacrifice of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, really present on the altar under the appearances of bread and wine and offered to God for the living and the dead.

Holy Mass is offered by an Ordained minister (Priest)

 

The Holy Mass is one and the same Sacrifice with that of the Cross, in as much as Christ who offered himself, a bleeding victim on the cross to His heavenly Father, continues to offer himself in an unbloody manner on the altar, through the ministry of his priests.
