Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

[Regarding the presence of our Lord's body and blood in the Eucharist:]

Faith does not make it, but finds it, unto life; unbelief does not unmake it, but, to its own condemnation, fails to discern it. The sacramental presence is fathomless, like the Incarnation; like it, also, it is in the sphere of supernatural reality, to which the natural is as a shadow. -- Krauth, *The Conservative Reformation* p. 647
