New Lutheran Quote of the Day

When Thomas Aquinas and Luther both trace the church back to Abel, they stand on common patristic ground. In this sense catholicity is but the oneness of the church throughout time and space. The church triumphant in heaven and the church militant on earth are one festal throng or ecclesia (Hebrews 12:23).—Prof. Kurt Marquart, The Church, p. 27.
