I’m reading The Precious Blood by Frederick William Faber, DD (1860)
Fr Faber says: “There was once a narrow minded heresy which denied that the precious blood was shed for all, maintaining that it was shed only for a chosen few. Like all heresies which depreciate the grandeurs of Jesus, it was an especially soul-destroying heresy…”
He says “the object of the Church, like the object of the precious blood, is universality.” -
“It is an institution for the express purpose of making salvation easier, shorter, safer, more various and more universal.”
I know he’s not speaking about the words of consecration here, but I’m confused. Any help appreciated. Thanks.
