with what honoure thou arte honoured, at what table thou sittest at: for with the same thing we are nourished, the whiche the Aungels do beholde, and tremble at: neither are they able to beholde without great feare, for the bryghtnes which resulteth thereof: and we be broughte and compacte into one heape or masse with him, being together one body of Christe and one fleshe with him. Who shall speake the powers of the Lorde, and shall declare forth all his prayses? What pastor hath euer nourished his shepe with his owne members? Many mothers, after their byrthe, hath put forth their infātes to other Nurses, which he would not do: but feedeth vs with his owne body, and cōioineth and glueth vs to him selfe. Whereupon I gather this argument.

[Back to Top]

Lyke as mothers nurse theyr Children with theyr mylke, so Christ nourisheth vs with his body.

But Mothers do not nourish their infants spiritually with their milke.

Therfore Christe dothe not nouryshe those that be his, spiritually with his bloud.

Cran. He gaue vs the wyne for his bloud.

VVest. If he gaue the wyne for his bloud, as you say, then he gaue lesse then mothers doo geue.

But Chrisostome affirmeth, that he gaue more then mothers geue.

Therefore he gaue not the wyne for his bloud.

Cran. You peruert myne answere: He gaue wyne, and yet the bloud is considered therein: as for example, when he geueth baptisme, we loke not on the water, but the holy Ghost, and remyssion of Sinnes. We receaue with the mouth, the Sacrament: the thing we receaue by fayth.

VVest. When Christ sayd (eate ye), whether ment he by the mouth or by fayth?

Cran. He ment that we should receaue the body by fayth, the bread by the mouth.

VVest. Naye the body by the mouth.

Cran. That I deny.

VVest. I proue it out of Chrisostome, writing vppon the fifty Psalme.

Erubescit fieri nutrix, quæ facta est mater. Christus autem non ita ipse nutritor est noster: ideo pro cibo carne propria nos pascit, & pro potu suum sanguinem nobis propinauit. Item in 26. Cap. Mathæi, Homel. 83. Non enim sufficiet ipsi hominem fieri, flagellis interim cædi: sed nos secum in vnam vt ita dicam massam reducet: ne id fide solum, sed reipsa nos corpus suum efficit. That is? She that is a Mother shameth somtime to play the nourse But Christ our nourse doth not so playe with vs; Therfore in the stede of meate he feedeth vs with his owne fleshe, and in stead of drinke he feedeth vs with his owne bloud. Likewise vppon the. 26. Chap. of Mathew the. 83. homely

[Back to Top]

he sayth. For it shall not be ynough for hym to becom man, and in the meane while to be whypped: but he shall bring vs into one masse or lompe with him selfe (as I maye so call it): and he doth make vs hys body, not by fayth alone, but also in very dede.

Cran. I graunte. We make one nature with Christ. but that to be done with mouth, we denye.

VVest. Chrisost. 2. Cor. cap. 13. Homel. 29. hath these wordes: Non vulgarem honorem consequutū est os nostrum, accipiens corpus dominicū &c. i. No litle honor is geuen to our mouthe, receiuing the body of the Lorde.

Cran. This I saye, that Christ entreth into vs both by our eares, and by our eyes. With our mouth we receaue the body of Christ, and teare it with our teeth, that is to meane, the sacrament of the body of Christ. And therfore I saye and affirme, that the vertue of the sacrament is much: and therfore Chrisostome, many tymes speaketh of sacramentes no otherwyse, thē of Christ him selfe, as I could proue if I mighte haue liberty to speake, by many places of Chrisostom, where that he speaketh of the sacrament of the body of Christ, with the which word of Sacrament of the body, &c. 

Commentary  *  Close

Foxe added the phrase 'with the which word of the sacrament of the body' to the 1570 edition (1570, p. 1598; 1576, p. 1363; 1583, p. 1434). Probably Foxe did this for explanatory purposes in order to show exactly at what Henry Cole was taking offence.

[Back to Top]

D. Cole being hyghly offended, denied it to be the sacrament of the body of Christ, saue only of the mistical body, which is the churche.

Cran. And why should we doubte to call it the sacramēt of the body of Christ, offered vpō the crosse, seing both Christ and the auncient Fathers do so call it?

Cole. How gather you that of Chrisostome?

Cran. Chrisostome declareth hym selfe. Lib. 3. De Sacerdotio cap. 3. O miraculum, O Dei in nos beneuolentia, qui sursum sedet ad dexteram patris, sacrificij tamen tempore hominum manibus continetur, traditur lambere cupientibus eum. Fit autem id nullis præstigijs, sed apertis & circumspicientibus circumstantium omnium oculis. That is to saye.

[Back to Top]

O miracle, o the good wil of god towardes vs, which sitteth aboue at the righte hand of the Father, and is holden in mens handes at the sacryfice tyme, & is geuen to fede vppon , to them that are desirous of hym. And that is broughte to passe by no subtilitie, or crafte, but with the open and beholding eyes of al the standers by.

[Back to Top]

Thus ye heare that Christ is seene here in earth euery day, is touched, is torne with the teeth, that our tong is red with hys bloud, which no man hauing any iudgement wyll say or thinke to be spoken without trope or figure.

VVest. What miracle is it, if it be not his body, and if he speake onely of the sacrament, as though it were his body?

But harken what Chrisostome sayeth. Home. 24. Quod summo honore dignum est, id tibi in terra ostendo. Nam quemadmodum in regijs non parietes, non lectum aureum, sed regum corpus in throno sedens, omnium præstantißimum est: ita quo in cœlis regum corpus, quod nunc in terra proponitur. Non angelos, non archangelos, non cœlos cœlorum, sed ipsum horum omnium dominum tibi ostendo. Animad-
