New Lutheran Quote of the Day
"The holy things for the holy ones." Thus the deacon calls to the faithful, who are invited to receive the body and blood of our Lord. They are invited, others are not; closed communion. A line is drawn: inside is the joy of the gifts, the holy things, the body and blood of our Lord; outside is the Law, aiming at repentance. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Lutheran Forum, May, 1991, p. 26.
