Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The cross of Christ is the tree of life, and He the precious fruit borne by heavenly grace upon it. The cross is the centre of Paradise Regained, as the tree of life was the centre of the first Paradise. Christ's body is the organ of life purchased by His obedience and death. The Holy Supper is the sacrament of that body, and, through that body, the sacrament of life which that body brings.—C. P. Krauth, Conservative Reformation, p. 586.
