He Wants Her | Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger

I’m going to rip the Pope’s words out of their Roman context and apply them to the church-at-large. These words are very fitting to a church trying to reinvent herself in order to survive:

This expression, “it is his Church and not ours”, is really a fork in the road for me: to acknowledge that we do not excogitate what the Church is but that we believe that He wants her and that we should try to recognize what He wants with her and place ourselves in this service.

(Excogitate: “chew over: reflect deeply on a subject” from Princeton Wordnet)
