THE DEATH & PRIESTHOOD OF CHRIST
And every priest stands day after day ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this man after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.
Hebrews 10:11-12


v   Transubstantiation & the real presence
There is no indication in the biblical accounts of the Last Supper that the disciples thought that the bread and wine changed into the actual body and blood of Christ.


v   The Priesthood
A common thread that runs throughout the experiences of former priests is this: we had a great yearning to be different.


v   Eat my flesh and drink my blood
As with each of the seven miracles in Johnís Gospel, Jesus uses the miracle to convey a spiritual truth.


v   Is it right to say that God died on the cross?
The title "God" refers to the Triune God, in the Persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They did not all die for our sins.


v   The Cross of Christ
To better understand the significance of Christís death it is worthwhile having a closer look at the ceremonies performed during the Old Testament.


v   No more sacrifice for sin
It is a serious thing to know about Christ and His sacrificial death, and then to reject it.


v   The Mass from Mystery to Meaning
As I sought a clearer understanding of this mystery, my search led me to the Sacred Scriptures.


u    Is the Mass the real sacrifice of Christ?
Despite almost forty years in the Catholic Church and experience as a catechism teacher, he didnít know that the Mass was supposedly the actual sacrifice of Christ. Neither did he realize that he was not only attending Christís sacrifice, but he was participating in it.


v   The Bread of Life
Jesus said, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirstĒ (John 6:35).
