|Parshas Vayikra: Salty Tears On A Korban|
Al kol korban'cha takriv melach (2:13); We find repeatedly that the laws concerning Tefillah are derived from the Korbonos that were offered in the Bais HaMikdash - (Shacharis corresponds to the Tamid brought in the morning, Mussaf to the Korban Mussaf..) If so, where do we find in our Tefillah a parallel to the requirement that every Korban be accompanied by salt? I once heard an answer that our heartfelt, salty tears are intended to correspond to the "salt" which was brought together with every single Korban. These tears are the equivalent to salting the Korbanos.
