Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Thus this holy supper will transform our souls; this most divine sacrament will make us divine men. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, Sacred Meditation XX

Paul, isn't that the oddest thing? It's ALL OVER the tradition. Shoot, even in Gerhard's very first volume of his Loci, he states quite clearly that the point of theology is "that it makes men divine or 'partakers of the divine nature'."
