Making a virtue of necessity?

"The Church falls back today out of love for the world and [as] at the same time forced by it—two aspects of a single event!—deeper and deeper [(immer stärker) in]to the position of defenseless independence."

     Ignaz Zangerle, "Zur situation der Kirche," Der Brenner 14 (1933/34):  45.
