ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the commemoration by the Catholic Church of the passion and death of Jesus Christ. According to the author, what Christ has done is a supreme sacrifice in expiation of all crimes and the whole world's sin. He says that in comparison with the old sacrifices in the blood of goats and calves, the sacrifice offered by Christ is considered the true, mighty, and effective one.
