The Lord Jesus himself declares: "This is my body"(Matt. 26.26). Before the blessing of heavenly words occurs it is a different thing that is referred to, but after the consecration it is called a body. He himself says that it is his blood (cf. Matt. 26-28). Before the consecration it has another name, but after the consecration it is designated blood. And you say: "Amen," which means: "It is true." What the mouth speaks, let the mind confess within: what the word says, let love acknowledge.
