Zangerle in early Nazi Germany

"in this lies the great danger for the Catholic Christian [trapped in the abstract realm of the natural law]: [that] for the merely intellectual possession of the truth [he will] neglect being fervently possessed by it" in such a way as to live it out in the concrete circumstances of space and time.
