The Visitation

Luke 1.39-56

Ephesians 6.12—For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Oh, Come, Oh, Come, Emmanuel v.4

Oh, come, O Key of David, come, And open wide our heav'nly home. Make safe the way that leads on high, And close the path to misery. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to you, O Israel!

THE POWER OF HOLY COMMUNION  Third:  How can eating and drinking do such great things?  It is certainly not the eating and drinking that does such things, but the words "Given” and “poured out for you for the forgiveness of sins."  These words are the main thing in the sacrament, along with the eating and drinking.  And whoever believes these words has what they plainly say, the forgiveness of sins.
