To create an earthly thing is easy for us. If we are content with an outward, technical Christianity – a "movement" based on an earthly foundation, with an earthly structure and organization – then it is quite possible for us to do the thing ourselves. But we have been apprehended for something utterly different from this. The Church is spiritual, and her work is heavenly. It must never become earth-bound.
