Quoting: American Indian Elder
I just keep thinking now about the Lords Supper Quoting: docsquat
Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
I always thought Jesus/God saw how bad we were and how we were injuring our souls to the point where we could not attain the REAL immortality. So he had to rescue us and teach us. He set up the priest hood so they could go out world over and recreate His Sacrifice, wherein He literally bled to death.
By creating the pure communion,He could save us. He allowed the priests to recreate the crucifixion at each Mass, and at the last supper used the hebrew wording to demand they recreate it: DO THIS, He said. and THIS IS my body, not this is kinda or a remembrance. It is thru a magic of transubstanciation(sp) His real body and blood although it still looks like bread and wine.
Jesus further told John (17; 20-23) I pray...that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they may be in us...that they may be brought to perfection as one. Read that whole part of John at the Last Supper. He was willing to come here to save a bunch of morons and ingrates by sharing His Divinity thru the brutal death on the cross and mystically feeding us forever to save us from the animal evil way things were going which destroyed our souls. Think about it. wow.
And how man slowly changed thru this and developed hospitals and churches and schools and peace for a long time and now is even more corrupt than before. He said He would be with us till the end(thru the Eucharist_)but the evil world almost got that in VatII as Fr. Martin told us: ONE WORD in the consecration was changed. Jesus said "do this for you and for MANY"and they said to be inclusive lets say "for ALL"But that wasnt what Jesus said. How dare they change the letter or the meaning of the most important thing in the new testament!!Without the BLood of Christ for our souls, the church fell into an ennui, (see the book AA-1024 which explains how communists infiltrate and invited gays into the church as priests etc.)Fr. Martin said, No correct words, no consecration, No consecration, no blood; no blood no sacrifice, no sacrifice NO MASS...For Years.
God bless brave little Pope Benedict xvi, who stood up to the pack of wolves circling him, and who knows at what price it cost him to correct this, but he did and then they forced him into a prison he rarely is allowed out of.
Hope this helps figure this important thing out...Im almost 80 and not good with tech stuff. And by the way the Native people who did the human sacrifices were mostly Aztec, not inca or mayen.

1 For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins? 3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year. 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5 Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, "SACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME; 6 IN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE. 7 "THEN I SAID, 'BEHOLD, I HAVE COME (IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.' " 8 After saying above, "SACRIFICES AND OFFERINGS AND WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, NOR HAVE YOU TAKEN PLEASURE in them" (which are offered according to the Law ), 9 then He said, "BEHOLD, I HAVE COME TO DO YOUR WILLHe takes away the first in order to establish the second.
10 By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 Every priest stands daily * ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices,
which can never take away sins;
12 but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time,
SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, 13 waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET. 14 For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,
16 "THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM," He then says, 17 "AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO * MORE." 18 Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin.
19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
