In sacraments there is something seen and something understood; something perceived by sense and something apprehended by faith. Sacraments are glasses for our understanding and monuments for our memories, that by means and visible sights we might perceive and call to mind sublime and invisible things. Here is bread, even the bread of life, to fill the hungry soul; and here is wine to satisfy the thirsty and cheer the drooping soul.
