In a sermon preached to the House of Commons in February 1620 he expounds his view that through the sacrament the communicant is spiritually united to Christ. 35 Ussher expounds the Christian possession of the Spirit in general terms and poses the question that if Christians have both the Spirit and faith, of what further avail is the sacrament?
