The Sacrifice of the Holy Mass
A guest document
is fondly dedicated
to our Christian brothers and sisters, who accuse Catholics of wanting
crucify Jesus Christ anew every time we offer the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass, as well as to our Catholic brothers and sisters
who obey without understanding or question the validity and/or
importance of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
is the meaning of "Sacrifice once and forever" when we refer to Jesus'
Sacrifice in Calvary and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? We will better
understand it if we understand the
connection between Time and Eternity.
Eucharist is like a window in Time with a view to Eternity. The
Sacrifice of Christ, in the particular form which took place in Mount
Calvary "under power of Pontius Pilate", happened at exactly one
Time. Simultaneously, it is consummated forever in
God does not need to reproduce His
Sacrifice, nor does He need that we recreate it. He simply invites us
to put ourselves in contact with it in Eternity, where the benefit of
His Sacrifice on the Cross, our salvation, is a present and enduring
reality for ever and
The benefit of the Sacrifice in the
Cross is always there in Eternity and accessible from our life in Time
by means of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The suffering, the pain of
Christ and ours, takes place in Time or - maybe we should say - in the
interaction between Time and Eternity.
When we partake of the Holy Sacrifice of
the Mass, we do
not produce nor cause again the Crucifixion. However, we do constantly
crucify Jesus Christ with our sins. Each
sin against our fellow men is a painful wound in His Suffering Body.
Thus, it is in our daily lives, and not
in the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass, where we crucify Jesus; it is in the
accessing of His Ctrucifixion, through the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass,
where we access the benefits of
this His Holy Sacrifice to atone for our sins.
This is why He instructed us thus: 19 And taking bread, he gave thanks, and brake; and
gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this
for a commemoration of me.
20 In like manner the chalice also, after he
had supped, saying:
This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed
for you. [Luke 22]
