Simple adoration … immediate relationship to God.

The disinterested character of simple adoration is man’s highest possibility; it alone forms his true and final liberation.

The Christian sacrifice is nothing other than the exodus of the soul that abandons itself, a process perfected in the man who is all exodus, all self-surpassing love.

The fundamental principle of Christian worship is consequently this movement of exodus … delivery of the “I” and therefore of the creature man to God.

  • Ratzinger, Joseph Cardinal.   Introduction To Christianity. (pp288-289)
