Conveying a Broken Heart to the Altar

Second, when Adam and Eve left the patio nursery, the Lord guided them to fabricate an holy place and offer creature penances. After numerous days a blessed messenger asked Adam for what valid reason he advertised penances. He replied, "I know not, spare he Lord summoned me." Then the heavenly attendant told him, "This thing is a likeness of the penance of the Only Begotten" (Moses 5:6—7).
In this manner, the creatures Adam and Eve relinquished were images that guided them to the Father's future redemptive penance of His Son. The holy messenger then taught them that Christ's penance and the arrangement of recovery would give importance and reason to all of their restriction—to be sure, to the greater part of their mortal experience.
