On faithfulness and the church

Thus in a world of competing and often violent interests, the most faithful service the church can render is to embody the weakness and humility of its crucified Lord, thereby disclosing a fundamental truth about human beings and society: without true worship and love for God, there can be no human fulfillment, happiness, or genuine communal life.  To paraphrase Augustine, we are made in the image of God, and we are restless until we find rest – peace – in God. 

– Michael Pasquarello III, Sacred Rhetoric: Preaching as a Theological  and Pastoral  Practice of the Church, 34.
