[20] Shedding Of Blood As The Only Means To Forgive Sin

(Mat 26:27-28) Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. {28} "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

If this Blood is for forgiveness of sin, then it can not be a mere remembrance.

It can not be just wine, as normal wine does not have the power of forgiveness of sin.

(Heb 9:22) And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.

Remission of sins immediately brings to mint the Blood of Christ.

This is why the priest, during the liturgy, repeats the utterance of Christ:

Given for the Forgiveness of Sins and Eternal Life to whoever partakes of it.
