Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Moreover, solemn festivals about the chief benefits of Christ, and of the principal points of the heavenly doctrine are celebrated with great devotion and piety, with explanation of the doctrine, and public praise of the benefits of God.... For the same reason we solemnly celebrate the feast of the resurrection of Christ, of His ascension, of the sending of the Holy Spirit, and of the Trinity.-- Blessed Martin Chemnitz, *Examination of the Council of Trent* IV:437
