At the heart of the city of Indianapolis stands a towering granite monument. About it are clustered statues depicting various scenes from the Civil War. Carved on the stone are these words: "To Indiana's Silent Victors."

When we come to communion we come to honor a Victor, but He is not a silent Victor. It was said of Abel "he still speaks, even though he is dead." If we change the tense of the verb we can say the same thing of Christ. Though He died, He rose again and He speaks to our hearts. In no place does He speak more eloquently than at the table of Communion.
