  1. Share ko lang ito nakuha ko kay Ross Earl Hoffman sa fb regarding the Sacrifice of the Eucharist:

    From Jesus onward, the first Christians spoke of the covenant with flesh-and-blood realism. Implicitly contrasting the New Covenant with the old, Jesus said, at His next-to-last Passover, “It was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven; My Father gives you the true bread from heaven…I am the bread of life…If any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh” (Jn 6:32, 35, 51). This pointed forward to the covenant meal Jesus would serve at His final Passover. St. Paul reports that, at that meal, Jesus commanded His disciples to “Do this”—to mark the covenant in the same way He had–“in remembrance of Me” 1 Cor 11:25). The Greek word that is translated here is “remembrance” carries much stronger connotations in ancient Hebrew culture. Given their original force, Paul’s words evoke a “re-calling”–not only remembering but re-actualizing, re-presenting. This meal is unmistakably the Real Presence of Jesus Christ: Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. St. Paul elsewhere speaks of the covenant meal with the same vivid realism. “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ?”(1 Cor 10:16). “Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord….Any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgement upon himself”(1 Cor 11:27,29). In this New Covenant meal, we step beyond the shadows of metaphor into the very image and reality of God’s glory. Our kinship with God is so real that His very blood courses through our bodies. We assimilate His flesh into our own. In the New Covenant meal, the Family of God eats the Body of Christ and so becomes the Body of Christ. This is how God willed us to became sons and daughters in the one eternal Son. “The children share in flesh and blood” (Heb 2:14), “conformed to the image of His Son”(Rom 8:29). By grace we are God’s image and likeness, His blood kin. (Dr. Scott Hahn, First Comes Love).
