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


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 />
