The Lord

The Church was established after the Son’s return to his Father, upon the descent of the Holy Spirit of Pentecost, Spirit that continually forms Christian history. Christ seems to have made her our weakness’ defendant, counter-poise of himself and his demands. She is the advocate of the possible, true mother; reminder, in view of God’s tremendous requirements, that after all we are only human.

by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger Romano Guardini
