Quote of the Day (Joseph T. Nolan, on the Need for the Sacraments)

“Because sacraments are actions, because they are related to the real world, we should be impelled to complete that reality; to love, to forgive, to serve, to trust, to make human life possible, to reverse and join with all creation until, in Augustine’s words, ‘There is one Christ giving praise and glory.’”—Joseph T. Nolan, “Do We Still Need the Sacraments?” in The Sacraments: Readings in Contemporary Sacramental Theology, edited by Michael J. Taylor, S.J. (1981)
