This is the 'New Covenant' in

This is the 'New Covenant' in MY Blood ... sounds New to me.

JESUS fulfilled the Old Covenant, bringing it to completion in HIS Death, Burial and Resurrection and JESUS established the New Covenant in HIS Blood at the same instant.

The 'Bloody' Sacrifices of the Old Testament became the 'UnBloody' Sacrifice of the Mass, wherein CHRIST makes Himself Present as the Lamb Slain before the foundation of the world, WHO was once slain upon the Cross at Calvary. It is a perpetual UnBloody Sacrifice which commemorates and memorializes, but which really and Truly Makes present the Eternal ongoing Holy Sacrifice of the Eternal Lamb Slain before the foundation of the world for our sins. It is an eternal 'Offering' to GOD the FATHER of GOD the SON in GOD the HOLY SPIRIT.

GOD Bless us all.
