Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

In Christ there is pure joy, yes, everlasting joy; he is no longer sorrowful or fainthearted; he no longer sweats drops of blood as he did in the garden, but in him there is true joy and gladness.  And the same Christ, in whom comfort and joy are to be found, has become our food, served up in the Word and eaten by faith. -- Blessed Martin Luther, Homily for Trinity 2, House Postils.
