“If you accord less honor to the words into the sacrament itself, it is a sure sign that you do not properly understand the sacrament. For example, if you bow or kneel before the sacrament, and do not do so even more before the words of the sacrament, especially in your heart, you are really inverting the honors. For that reason it is highly important to lead the people back from the sacrament to the words, and to accustom them to pay much more attention to the words then to the sacrament; ….” Martin Luther, The Adoration of the Sacrament, LW, AE, 36:277
