Michael Ramsey: “the Church exists for something deeper than philanthropy and reform”

6 July 2012

‎”For the Church exists for something deeper than philanthropy and reform, namely to teach men to die to self and trust in the Resurrection to a new life which, because it spans both this world and another world, can never be wholly understood here, and must always puzzle this world idealists. Hence, as the body of Christ crucified and risen, the Church points men to a unity and peace which men generally neither understand nor desire.”

- Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey, from his book “The Gospel and the Catholic Church”
