Patristic Quote of the Day

The Lord Jesus Himself proclaims: "This is My body." Before the blessing of the heavenly words, it is spoken of as bread; after the consecration, the body is proclaimed. So, too, with the blood. And you say, "Amen," that is, "It is true." -- St. Ambrose of Milan, On the Mysteries IX:54
