QotD – Adoration & Obedience – 2.15.2016

The splendor of theology, that devouring fire between two nights, two abysses: adoration and obedience.  Not for a single moment can theology forget its roots, from which all its nourishment is drawn: adoration, in which we see, in faith, the heavens opened; and obedience in living, which frees us to understand the truth. (Hans Urs von Balthasar, Explorations in Theology)
