Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

And which body and which blood He means He Himself explains by repeated statement, saying: This is My body (namely, that one), which is given for you, and This is my blood (namely that) which is shed for you. Now, Christ gave not a sign, or power and efficacy of His absent body for us, but the same true and substantial body that was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. -- Martin Chemnitz, *Enchiridion* 261
