Sermon Illustrations

The Tabernacle and later the Temple had many furnishings… incense altar, laver, lamp, censers, the ark and various implements and tools, but NO CHAIR!

The work of the priests was never finished!

It is still so with Roman Catholicism today…

“In the Eucharist Christ gives up the very body which he gave up for us on the cross, the very blood which he poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. The Eucharist is thus a sacrifice because it re-presents (makes present) the sacrifice of the cross,.. the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and offered in an unbloody manner… this sacrifice is truly propitiatory.” P.344Catachism of the Catholic church, 2000
