“Here your heart must go out in love and learn that [Holy Communion] is a sacrament of love. As love and support are given you, you in turn must render love and support to Christ in his needy ones. ... For the sacrament has no blessing and significance unless love grows daily and so changes a person that he is made one with all others.”

Martin Luther, “The Blessed Sacrament of the Holy and True Body of Christ, and the Brotherhoods,” 1519
