New Lutheran Quote of the Day
Christ's self-sacrifice upon the cross is the sacrificial element in the sacrament. Thus to "do" the sacrament is simply to participate in Christ's sacrifice, and this participation occurs in the eating of His body and blood in the Sacrament.—Daniel J. Brege, Eating God's Sacrifice, pp. 189, 190.
