"It is not passivity that mirrors the Passion of the Word; it is the act of loving in the midst of the desperate helplessness of the world. Quietism is only a parody of victimization; resignation is a door into an empty house. The true Christ does not just stand and wait; he butts his head against the impossibilities until they crucify him; and then, having opened the door of the Passion, he invites the church into the deepest mystery of all." 

-- Robert Farrar Capon
