MARK 14:23 -2.
Could I only give you a new and vivid sense of the faith and love, the greatness and truth of which they tell, you would receive an exhilaration and conscious nourishment that no material element can supply. Then would you understand what our communion service is designed to be, and what it is to commemorate Jesus in spirit and in truth.
The word sacrament comes from the Latin sacramentum, which means the oath whereby the Roman soldier bound himself in allegiance to his general, and this was no ritual service. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Fragments Gathered From Unpublished Items Ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy, p.44)
