New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The holy ones are the saints, the ones the Lord has made His own, the baptized.  They are holy with a received holiness, those upon whom the light of His grace has shined, the faithful who say "Amen" to the gifts given them.  What cannot be said "Amen" to in this way has no place in the liturgy, "in church." -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Lutheran Forum, Vol. 25, No. 2 (May, 1991), p. 26.
