New Lutheran Quote of the Day

How it can be that what is plainly bread and wine is at the same time the body and blood of the Lord, Lutherans do not try to explain. They take the words of Jesus as they stand, as he said them, and they dispense with further questions and speculations. -- Henry Hamann, *On Being a Christian* p. 99
