“Nevertheless, you can see that adoration of the sacrament is a dangerous procedure if the Word and faith are not inculcated; so much so that I really think it would be better to follow the example of the apostles and not worship, then to follow our custom and worship. Not that adoration is wrong, but simply because there is less danger in not adoring then in adoring; because human nature tends so easily to emphasize its own works and to neglect God's work, and the sacrament will not admit of that.” Martin Luther, The Adoration of the Sacrament, LW, AE, 36:297
