I am having trouble understanding something. While Christians are instructed to take Communion, I don't understand how Christ currently offers Himself as a sacrifice in the Eucharist, when He already offered Himself on the Cross "once and for all", and declared that it was "finished". I've read part of the Catechism, but can't find anything that directly answers my question.
Why would Jesus say His sacrifice is "once and for all" if He is currently being resacrificed in the Eucharist?
I haven't looked up any Anglican articles yet, but will continue searching and hopefully come to a sound conclusion..soon.:-/
