[T]he sacraments (with their source in the Eucharist) are the form of tradition; and that tradition is the content of the sacraments.
“It is in the Eucharist that the Bride receives a share in the Lord’s ‘traditioning,’ whose unity of completeness and newness, in turn, enables development of doctrine while distinguishing it from arbitrary innovation.”
“What is passed on in tradition is not just some truth, but the ground of all truth.”
“The technocrat is the autocrat; or rather, he fancies he rules himself by means of his tools.”
“Poetry is made of poetry, but always in some sense is about something else.”
“[T]radition is not an indiscriminate preservation of everything but rather comprises a selective and dynamic process of both remembering and forgetting.”
“Any theology that does not serve that which we first adore and which cannot be translated into holy action is not truly theology.”
