Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

True faith is absolutely necessary when approaching the Supper for sacramental eating so that which was instituted for life is received by us for life. Therefore, I approach this heavenly Meal with true faith, firmly convinced that the body I eat is the one given into death for me, that the blood I drink is the blood shed for my sins. - Johann Gerhard, *Meditations on Divine Mercy* p. 87
