The eucharistic preface for Holy Week

The eucharistic prefaces are rich in their doctrinal and scriptural content. They say so much in just a sentence or two. The one for Holy Week would be fitting for reflection at this moment.

". . . Through Jesus Christ our Lord; who for our sins was lifted high upon the cross, that he might draw the whole world to himself; who by his suffering and death became the author of eternal salvation for all who put their trust in him." Book of Common Prayer, p 347.
