carrying within

“That’s the thing, von Balthasar argues, that so confuses the world. The world can argue against the institution. It can see the stupidity of the rules and regulations. It can see through the hypocrisy of a church preaching poverty but ruling in wealth. But then the world comes across the saints, and it doesn’t know what to do. Not just the saints of old times, but the saints of today: those people who have learned what it is to share in God’s nature, who have embraced God’s story and gone out into the world to find other fragments of that story to make it even better. Ordinary people who carry within them a sense of who God is, who carry within them the presence of God: you know someone like that, don’t you? That’s discipleship.”

I don’t know where this quote comes from, but it is very good!
