 Sant'Apolinare Mosaic Ravenna - Abel, Melchisedec and Abraham Sacrifices


This lecture by Dom Alban was given at St. James parish as part of the Lent lecture series, and was given on March 18th, 2018.

In the Roman Canon, shortly after the Consecration, the priest prays that God accept the sacrifice on the altar as He once accepted the sacrifices of Abel, Abraham and Melchizedek. This lecture examines those sacrifices and how they are types of Christ's Sacrifice on the Cross and in the Mass.
