[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]

Sin,—In your comment on my letter you say, " Surely it is in the Risen and glorified body that those who repeat the Creed believe." I answer " Yes, of course, that is why the words This is my body,' This is my blood,' cannot be taken in the literal material sense."

We are so accustomed to read higher meanings into these words that we simply cannot think of them literally. nut is why the mere mention of the literal meaning comes as a shock. There is no one—simply no one-- who possesses Christian Faith who can take them as a statement of material fact.—I am, Sir, &e., X.
