The Blood of Christ (Good Friday-18) (2nd of 3-part series on the Eucharist during the Triduum)

Today we don’t celebrate Mass, but we still receive the blood of Christ to protect us and sanctify us.

The Blood of Christ (Good Friday-18) (2nd of 3-part series on the Eucharist during the Triduum)

From the earliest tradition, no Mass is said on this day and so no Anamnesis through the Mass, however we receive the Eucharist which is the blood of Christ. We receive it as the Passover lamb on our lips to ward off the Angel of Dead like the Jews on the door post of their homes. We receive the blood and receive the life blood of divinity through Jesus. Lastly, in Yom Kippur the sins of the Jewish people are put in a goat. The sins of the world are put on Jesus and he offers himself up to the Father as the perfect sacrifice out of total love and submission of will. Good Friday is good because we are redeemed on this day. It is Good Friday because on this day we know how much God loves us. 3/30/18
