The Eucharist and the Sacrifice on Calvary are one event: Jesus one Gift of Himself, and He invites us to participate. We have been given such a wonderful amazing gift, and yet so many Catholics have been given an idea that it is so much less than it is. The Mass gets us to the center of the Christian mystery, and here is a brief reflection on why.
Dr. Scott Hahn, Professor of Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, speaks about “The Bible and the Sacrifice of the Mass” at the 2012 Defending the Faith Conference here on campus in Steubenville, Ohio. Dr. Scott Hahn is the Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR, Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
