CWN Editor's Note: The Archbishop of Lima appeared to contradict fundamental Catholic doctrine in a December homily, saying that the Crucifixion of Christ should not be understood as a sacrifice.

Archbishop Carlos Castillo Mattasoglia said that “Jesus doesn’t die offering the sacrifice of a holocaust; Jesus dies as a murdered layman.” He added that Jesus “dies as a layman who gives hope to humanity, he dies as a human being like all of you.”
