why is lily potters sacrifice still active in harry? or is it not? i understand everything else dont worry about horxruxes, but not this.

-answer: It is still active because when Lily's sacrifice was made, it was to protect Harry at all costs. When the Dark Lord took Harry's blood to reconstruct a new body, the sacrifice was transferred into him as well, and permitted him to make contact with Harry. Then, in the 7th Book, Harry sacrificed himself to protect everyone from the Dark Lord, and having destroyed all Voldemort's Horcruxes, and now hindering his capability to dammage anyone, it served as a large blow to His confidence. This was all Harry needed to cast the one mediocre spell that rebounded the Dark Lord's now feeble magic onto himself, thus, destroying him finally. -wookiee1807
