Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The cross is the center of Paradise regained, as the tree of life was the center of the first Paradise.  Christ's body is the organ of the life purchased by His obedience and death.  The Holy Supper is the sacrament of that body, and, through that body, of the life which that body brings. -- C. P. Krauth, The Conservative Reformation, p. 586.
