Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Because You were given to me, so also shall all things be given to me. My nature is glorified more in You than it was disgraced in Adam through sin. Because You assumed into the unity of Your person that which was only tarnished by Satan, You truly are flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone. You are my brother. What can You deny to me, the person to whom You are most intimately joined by the same essence of flesh and by the feeling of fraternal love? -- Johann Gerhard, *Meditations on Divine Mercy* pp. 65,66
