What Do the Fathers Say?

Posted by Nathanael Szobody on

This food we call eucharist, and no one may receive it unless he believes that our teaching is true, and has been washed with the washing for forgiveness of sins unto regeneration, and lives as Christ handed down to us. For we do not receive these things as though they were common bread or common drink…as we have been taught they are the flesh and blood of the incarnate Jesus.

–Justin Martyr, 100-165 AD
