Dear Chevalier Thomas Abraham
The sacrifice of Christ on the cross in Calvary and the sacrifice of the Holy Qurbono in Thronose are one single sacrifice with the "substance" of Christ being the same but with the "manner" of the offering of Christ being different: The scarifying Lamb is one and the same, who then offered himself on the cross, only the manner of offering is different. In this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Qurbono, the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered in an unbloody manner.
And all sacrifices of animals are over by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in Calvary and therefore animal products are forbidden on Holy Altar were we are offering the "Raktha Rahita Bali"
