Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Sacramental Presence is the necessary sequel, the crowning glory of the Incarnation and Atonement; and the illumination of the Holy Spirit in the word which enables the eye of faith to see God in the body, and redemption in the blood, enables it to see the body in the bread and the blood in the cup, not after the manner of the first man, who is of the earth, earthy, but after the manner of the second Man, who is the Lord from heaven. -- C. P. Krauth, *Conservative Reformation* p. 650.
