    In John Jewel's treatise on the Body and Blood of Christ, as I have read it on, there is this statement:

    The very body of Christ it self is not in the holy vessels, but the mystery or Sacrament thereof is there contained.

    The attribution in the margin reads, Hom. 11. in Math. which I take to mean his 11th Homily on Matthew. But when I researched that document, I could not locate the quote. Can anyone guide me with a link to where this quote originates? I have quoted the statement to others and have been challenged as to its correctness. TIA.
