A: The Mass is a sacrifice because it makes present to us, right here in our own parish church, the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
That doesn't mean that the priest is somehow killing Jesus again or that there needs to be another sacrifice after Jesus died on the cross. There is one sacrifice of Jesus for all time and for all people. But we're dealing with eternity here. That one sacrifice is present to us on the altar at every Mass. We see the Body and Blood of Christ offered today because Christ is living and eternal.
