Zeno of Verona: "This, I say, is the perfect Lamb, for in it the high priest concealed in His victim by reason of the mystery, today gave to God the Man whom He offered in sacrifice, " Lib. II, Ephraem abounds in the praises of this great sacrifice. Thus He writes in the Hymnus azymorom: "The Lamb of truth, knowing that a rejected priesthood and polluted sacrificers did not suffice for Him, became for His own Body the Priest and the Prince of sacrificers.
Our Sacrificer, become Victim by His own sacrifice, abolished the victims and showered His grace all over the world. No lamb is greater than the heavenly Lamb. For polluted priests were not worthy to offer the immaculate Lamb, the pacific Victim who brought peace to heaven and earth, bringing peace to all by His Blood" Hymn azym. Lamy, t. Hilary, contrasting the sacrifices of the Law with the sacrifice of Christ, says that the sacrifice of Christ was superexcellent in this: that the sacrifices of the Law were commanded to be offered under threat of a curse, while that sacrifice was offered in the most perfect freedom: "Therefore He offered Himself to the death of the accursed, in order to destroy the curse of the Law, by freely offering Himself a Victim to God the Father, so that the curse which sin caused, and which was attached to the necessary and intermittent victims, should be lifted by a voluntary victim.
In another place in the Psalms mention is made of this sacrifice: Sacrifices and oblations thou wouldst not: but a body thou hast fitted to me; by offering to God the Father, who rejected the sacrifices of the Law, the pleasing Victim of His Body. The holy Apostle thus speaks of this offering: This He did once offering himself a pleasing victim to God; He would redeem the whole human race by the offering of this holy and perfect victim" in Ps. L 9, Indeed, so widely promulgated and so firm was the faith of the Church in the truth of the sacrifice of Christ, that it was looked upon as an established fact in the controversies that arose between the heretics and the Catholics.
