(The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi))
Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words of his.” Ex 24:3-8
Jesus took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it. He said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many.” Mk 14:12-16, 22-26
Old Covenant, New Covenant
Continuous sacrifice, One Time sacrifice.
Blood of animals, Blood of God Himself.
Temporary fix, Permanent fix.
Temporal reward, Eternal reward.
Thank you Jesus!
