"die innere Bereitmachung der Kirche—notfalls auch für das Blutzeugnis"

"the inner making-ready of the Churchfor even martyrdom if necessary"

     Ignaz Zangerle (1905-1987), "Zur Situation der Kirche," Der Brenner 14 (1933-1934): 67-68. Inner, i.e. mystical, supra-juridical: that getting ready, that girding-up so consistent with what the Church is at heart and out of sight, i.e. to the eyes of faith alone. Note the place (Austria) and time.
