Fathers of the Church -  St Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335 - 394 A.D.)

"The bread again is at first common bread; but when the mystery sanctifies it, it is called and actually becomes the Body of Christ. So too the mystical oil, so too the wine; if they are things of little worth before the blessing, after their sanctification by the Spirit each of them has its own superior operation. This same power of the word also makes the priest venerable and honorable, separated from the generality of men by the new blessing bestowed upon him." (Sermon on the Day of Lights or On the Baptism of Christ)
