A Word from St. Cyprian of Carthage

From the Letter of Cyprian to a Certain Magnus, AD 255.

"Even the very Sacrifices of the Lord bespeak a Christian unanimity bound to itself by a firm and inseparable charity. When the Lord calls bread made from the union of many granules His Body, He points out our people, whom He was betokening as made one; and when He calls wine, which is pressed from many grapes and clusters and reduced to a whole, His Blood, again He signifies our flock, joined together by the blending of a multitude into one."
