“The Church is alive because it is the theatre of this life of the Word, because it participates in the movements of this life, because by faith it says Yes to these movements, seeking its own salvation only in the fact that they take place, imitating them in so far as its worship and fellowship, preaching and confession occur in the following of these movements. Because this happens, the Church can as little perish as the Word of God itself. In its discipleship of the Word, it shares in the imperishability in the transitory world.” (I/2, 690)
