Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Christ, in His Supper, offers us His most holy body and blood, so that engrafted by this communion as branches in Him who is the true Vine, we might draw thence, new, good, and spiritual sap. Thus we are also joined most closely by this communion with other Christians as members of the one body of Christ, so that mutual love toward the neighbor is kindled, increased, and preserved in us. -- Blessed Martin Chemnitz, *Enchiridion* 129
