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

"the inner making-reading of the Church--for even martyrdom if necessary"

Ignaz Zangerle, "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.
