Chapter 1
THE NATURE OF HOLY MASS (cont.)

​​When, we ask, did Christ exercise His priestly office according to the order of Melchisedech?  At the Last Supper, when He took bread, blessed it, and said to His disciples: "Take ye, and eat: This is My body." (Matt. 26:26).  In like manner, taking the chalice with wine, He blessed it, and gave it to His disciples, saying: "Drink ye all of this, for this is My blood.  Do this for a commemoration of Me." (Matt. 26:27-28; Luke 22:19).  

On that occasion, therefore, Christ exercised His priestly office after the manner of Melchisedech.  For if He did not do so then, He never did so at all throughout His whole life, and in that case, He would not have been a priest according to the order of Melchisedech.  And yet, in what exalted language St. Paul describes His priesthood: "The others indeed were made priests without an oath, but this with an oath, by Him that said unto Him:  The Lord hath sworn, and He will not repent:  Thou art a priest forever... But this, for that He continueth forever, hath an everlasting priesthood." (Heb. 7:20, 21, 24).  Hence we see the truth of what the Catholic Church teaches in the Council of Trent: "In the Last Supper, He offered up to God the Father His own Body and Blood under the species of bread and wine and commanded His Apostles and their successors in the priesthood to offer them under these symbols when He said: 'Do this for a commemoration of Me,' even as the Catholic Church has always understood and taught.  And this is indeed that clean oblation which cannot be defiled by any unworthiness or malice of those that offer it, which the Lord foretold by Malachias was to be offered in every place clean to His name." (Session xxii, Ch. 1).  

The offering of this clean oblation was predicted by the prophet Malachias in the following words: "I have no pleasure in you, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will not receive a gift of your hand.  For from the rising of the sun even to the going down My name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice, and there is offered to My name a clean oblation." (Malach. 1:10-11).  All the Fathers of the Church consider this passage to refer to the Sacrifice of the Mass.  For this prophecy does not find its fulfillment in the Old Testament, but in the New, wherein also are fulfilled the words which were spoken by God the Father to His Son: "Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee.  Ask of Me, and I will give Thee the Gentiles for Thy inheritance." (Ps. 2:7-8).  This was accomplished when the heathen were converted to the Faith by the preaching of the Apostles.  The sacrifice here predicted by Malachias cannot be that which was offered by Christ on the Cross, as non-Catholics assert; for that was made in one place only, on Calvary, not in every place, as the prophet declares.  Nor can the supposition be entertained that the prophecy refers to a sacrifice of praise or of good works, for these are no oblation in the proper sense of the word, nor are they always a "clean oblation"; as the prophet says: "All our justices are before Thee as a filthy rag." (Is. 64:6).
