New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The true liturgical spirit has for its source the intimate union with Jesus Christ... Our Lord comes in the Mass not to be adored, but to offer Himself in union with us and to be our spiritual food. He comes 'not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and give His Life a ransom for many.' -- B. von Schenk, The Presence, p. 173.

Wrong, wrong, wrong, totally wrong. Christ is BOTH the offerer and the offered, the priest and the sacrificial victim, the worshiper and the worshiped.

If I were to visit your blog and after you quoted Schmemann, say, were to write: "Wrong, wrong, wrong, totally wrong." Would you regard that as rude behavior on your blog? Why or why not?
