INTRODUCTION OF THE 4TH CUP

PSALMS 22

The Early Catholic Church I would like to start by asking you two questions. One: Can you can give an accurate definition of the phrase: "Lamb of God"? We all know that this is one of the names used for Jesus, like Messiah, Savior, Son of Man, or Christ. But exactly what is the importance of the name "Lamb of God"? And why is it important to me as a Catholic? The second question I would like to ask you is: Why the Catholic Church would offer The Holy Eucharist every day at every Mass throughout the world in over 3000 languages. What knowledge do they have that would make them feel compelled to do this for thousands of years? In answering this question, we'll see why the Catechism of the Catholic Church states that "The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life.'" (CC 1324)

I wanted to share this with you because it help clear things up for me. I found this also referenced in the footnotes of my Bible. It's a reference back to Psalm 22. This explains why Jesus cried out, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" We need to understand that Jesus was pointing to a passage in Psalms. We call it Psalm 22. They didn't have them numbered back then, but the Jews knew many of the Psalms. They were taught the Psalms. They knew this particular Psalm along with many many other ones. Do you know any Psalms from memory? When I was a child I was taught, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall now want." Yeah I remember that one, but there’s a lot of Psalms that people learn. Back then they didn’t have paper and pencil so they could write them down and memorize them. They were orally taught. These Psalms were written hundreds and hundreds of years before Christ. One Psalm, Psalm 22, is written by David....
