Weekly Communion in the Augsburg Confession

If you are Lutheran, how often should you have Communion in your services? Here is what the Augsburg Confession says:

Because the Mass is for the purpose of giving the Sacrament, we have Communion every holy day, and if anyone desires the Sacrament, we also offer it on other days, when it is given to all who ask for it. – Article XXIV: 34

To be Lutheran should mean to have Communion at least every Sunday, as well as on other days.

  1. This is great! One of my local pastors, Kenneth Wieting, wrote a small booklet on this as well. That picture is also the cover to the online part of my LC class!
