This passage was a reviving tonic to my heart in my trials concerning this Sacrament; and if we had no more passages than this one, we could nonetheless sufficiently confirm all consciences with it and forcefully enough refute all adversaries.  ...Plainly and clearly St. Paul states: The very bread which we break is the communion of the body of Christ.  do you hear, my dear brother?  The broken bread, or the bread distributed in pieces, is the communion of the body of Christ.  It is, it is, it is, says he, the communion of the body of Christ.  but what is the communion of the body of Christ?  It can consist in nothing else than this, that they who individually take a piece of the broken bread receive in it the body of Christ.  (What Luther Says - p. 797 - para 2476)
