In our examination of the nature and meaning of the Lord's Supper, we have found that it is indeed a most important and holy Sacrament.

They stoop and bow down together; unable to rescue the burden, they themselves go off into captivity.
They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Even though someone cries out to it, it cannot answer; it cannot save them from their troubles.
