Q&A

Why does the Offertory Prayer seem to imply that the sacrifice of the Mass only symbolizes Christ? It sounds heretical.

Question:

At Mass on Epiphany Sunday, the Offertory Prayer went something like this: &quot;Lord, accept the offerings of your Church, not gold, frankincense, and myrrh, but the sacrifice and food they symbolize: Jesus Christ who is Lord for ever and ever.&quot; Why does the prayer say that the food symbolizes Jesus? Why use such confusing language? It ends up sounding like heresy. <br />
