Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The cross of Christ is the tree of life, and He the precious fruit borne by heavenly grace upon it. The cross is the center of Paradise Regained, as the tree of life was the center of the first Paradise. Christ's body is the organ of the life purchased by His obedience and death. The Holy Supper is the sacrament of that body, and through the body, the sacrament of the life which that body brings. -- Krauth, *Conservative Reformation* p. 586
