Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The whole sacrifice of Calvary is focused to a point at the Altar.  It is brought home and made a reality as I kneel to receive the true Body and Blood given and shed for me.  Then it was offered on the Cross, now, in heaven triumphant - through the bread and wine.  Here I truly touch Calvary, which is now being pleaded by my High Priest.  Here I find the secret whereby I can touch my God, the secret whereby divine love can also be born in me and thus radiate through me into the lives of my fellow-men. - Berthold von Schenk, *The Presence* p. 91
