New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The whole work of the Church is eucharistic worship as long as Eucharistic worship remains an integral part of the work of the Church. By the same token the whole life of individual Christians in the world remains a continual eucharistia, or thanksgiving, as long as they have constant recourse, in the company of their fellow-members of the mystical Body of their Lord, to His Eucharistic Body and Blood. -- A. C. Piepkorn, *The Church* p. 239
