Daf Yomi - Yoma 45 - L'kovod Shabbos

The Gemara states that there were certain changes in the service of the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kippur that were done in honor of the Kohen Gadol. The Gemara is teaching us that because it was Yom Kippur, the Kohen Gadol was treated differently. Although this may sound obvious to us, we must remember that the Medrash states that on Shabbos, the shine of a person’s face is different than the shine during the week. The Jewish People are always special, but on Shabbos, HaShem considers His children, the Jewish People, to be extra special, and we must honor HaShem by properly observing the Holy Shabbos.
