Christianity is essentially a religion of fellowship. ...Moreover, Christianity is a sacramental religion, and the principle underlying not only the rite of Holy Communion, but prototypes of it which existed in earlier mystery-cults in the shape of sacramental meals, is that of uniting the fellow-devotees together in the bonds of brotherly love and common aspiration. This may be called the spiritual basis of such collective work.
