Eucharist: The Blood of the Lamb
Third homily in a series on the Eucharist
The Eucharist as a Sacrifice. The blood of Jesus poured out for us is our salvation. "This is the blood of the new and eternal covenant" is a clear reference to sacrificial language. The Eucharist is our communion in the blood of the Lamb.
Note: While quoting the Catechism (para. 1366) , Fr. Dave mistakenly attributed a teaching to "one of the saints" when in fact it was from the Council of Trent.
