"So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: 'Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.' As he saith also in another place: 'Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.'" Hebrews 5:5,6
Jesus Christ is our High Priest continually offering of His one sacrifice of Self at Cavalry on altars around the world. Melchizedek was the king/high priest of Salem and offered a sacrifice of bread and wine. Abraham offered to him 10% of everything he had. I can't do justice to this passage so I'll leave it to the saints:
"Formerly a lamb was offered, a calf was offered. Christ is offered
today...and he offers himself as priest in order that he may remit our
sins: here in image, there in truth where, as our advocate, he
intercedes for us before the Father."--St Ambrose
I'm also leaving a link to a talk by Dr Scott Hahn called The Eucharist as the Meal of Melchizedek.
