Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
I thought that God sacrificed His Son's blood for us. How can we offer Jesus' blood back to God? Isn't that like refusing the gift of God? It sounds like offering God to God.
In a sense God was offered to God, because only the death of God could be a powerful enough sacrifice to redeem all souls in past, present, and future. When we confess Christ's once-and-for-all sacrifice as redeeming all mankind and that which saves us, we can be said to be offering Christ's sacrifice to God for ourselves. God allowed his Son to be sacrificed, but we are the ones who are offering the sacrifice because we are the ones that are benefiting from the sacrifice. God doesn't have sins that need atoning for.
