Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

If, therefore, you are heavy-laden and feel your weakness, then go joyfully to the Sacrament and receive refreshment, comfort, and strength. -- Blessed Martin Luther, *Large Catechism* V:72

V:73-74 goes well with this old Lutheran Quote.Thanks for this post. It moved me to review all of Part V. Luther urges Christians to receive the Sacrament frequently. For me this means at least once a week. Seems to me congregations that don't offer the Eucharist each Service on Every Lord's Day is denying Christ to those wishing to receive Christ. But what do I know? I am just shouting from the mountain top.
