John Calvin on Weekly Communion (Lord’s Supper)

communionreflectionversesReflecting on a crucial text like Acts 2:42 and the spiritual benefits of the Lord’s Supper, John Calvin argues for its weekly observance,

Each week, at least, the table of the Lord ought to have been spread for the company of Christians, and the promises declared on which we might then spiritually feed.”  –Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, 4.17.44, 46.

See my post An Advantage to Holy Communion Weekly? for my own arguments on the matter.
