The Church is guided by the Spirit of God Who embraces all in His infinite simplicity. The Holy Ghost is her life and He is also the source and mover of her prayer. The Holy Ghost prays in the Liturgy and, when we pray with the Liturgy, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Christ, prays in us. He teaches us how to pray by praying in us. He not only gives us words to say and sing, He also sings them in our hearts. And when, as must inevitably happen, we fall far short of understanding or appreciating what the prayers mean, the Spirit of God "helps our weakness," asking on our behalf, with a fervor of infinite love we shall never be able to comprehend ■ Thomas Merton, Bread in the Wilderness (New York: New Dimensions, 1953): 41

Y entonces uno se queda con la Iglesia, que me ofrece lo único que debe ofrecerme la Iglesia: el conocimiento de que ya estamos salvados –porque esa es la primera misión de la Iglesia, el anunciar la salvación gracias a Jesucristo- y el camino para alcanzar la alegría, pero sin exclusividades de buen pastor, a través de esa maravilla que es la confesión y los sacramentos. La Iglesia, sin partecitas.
