For it is the bitter grief of theology and its blessed task, too, always to have to seek (because it does not clearly have present to it at the time) ... always providing that one has the courage to ask questions, to be dissatisfied, to think with the mind and heart one ACTUALLY has, and not with the mind and heart one is SUPPOSED TO have. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
In the midst of our lives, of our freedom and our struggles, we have to make a radical, absolute decision. And we never know when lightening will strike us out of the blue. It may be when we least expect to be asked whether we have the absolute faith and trust to say yes ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
If we have been given the vocation and grace to die with Christ then the everyday and banal occurrence which we call human death has been elevated to a place among God's mysteries. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
Only in love can I find you, my God. In love the gates of my soul spring open, allowing me to breathe a new air of freedom and forget my own petty self. In love my whole being streams forth out of the rigid confines of narrowness and anxious self-assertion, which make me a prisoner of my own poverty emptiness. In love all the powers of my soul flow out toward you, wanting never more to return, but to lose themselves completely in you, since by your love you are the inmost center of my heart, closer to me than I am to myself. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
But there is yet another form of this hidden heresy, and, paradoxically, it can affect those who are proudest of their long-standing and unimpeachable orthodoxy; heresy in the form of indifference. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
Emptiness is only a disguise for an intimacy of God's, that God's silence, the eerie stillness, is filled by the Word without words, by Him who is above all names, by Him who is all in all. And his silence is telling us that He is here. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic (one who has experienced God for real) or nothing at all. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
In the post-Christian world, all Christians will be mystics. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
The Christian of the future will be a mystic or he will not exist at all. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
Grace is everywhere as an active orientation of all created reality toward God. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
What Christ gives us is quite explicit if his own words are interpreted according to their Aramaic meaning. The expression 'This is my Body' means this is myself. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
When man is with God in awe and love, then he is praying. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
The task of the theologian is to explain everything through God, and to explain God as unexplainable. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
Knowing God is more important than knowing about God. ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
Orthodoxy is the wide open field within which successful breeding can take place. If one maintains that Jesus was an eater of magic mushrooms or a Martian, then this will not make for fertility. There is not enough in common for there to be intercourse in any sense. How different can two believers be for the encounter to be fertile? This is a complex question which we do not need to explore here. Of course ultimately we must share orthodoxy, but this is not to narrow the scope of the conversation; it is to enter the broad terrain of the mystery, in which we are liberated from the tightness of ideology. It is a serious misuse of language to use the word 'orthodox' to mean conservative or, even worse, rigid. Orthodoxy does not lie in the unvarying and thoughtless repetition of received formulas. As Karl Rahner pointed out, that can be a form of heresy. Orthodoxy is speaking about our faith in ways that keep open the pilgrimage towards the mystery. Often it is hard to know immediately whether a new statement of belief is a new way of stating our faith or its betrayal. It takes time for us to tell. ~ Timothy Radcliffe
K Rahner quotes by Timothy Radcliffe
Meditating on the nature and dignity of prayer can cause saying at least one thing to God: Lord, teach us to pray! ~ Karl Rahner
K Rahner quotes by Karl Rahner
In the ultimate depths of his being man knows nothing more surely than that his knowledge, that is, what is called knowledge in everyday parlance, is only a small island in a vast sea that has not been travelled. It is a floating island, and it might be more familiar to us than the sea, but ultimately it is borne by the sea and only because it is can we be borne by it. Hence the existentiell question for the knower is this: Which does he love more, the small island of his so-called knowledge or the sea of infinite mystery? ~ Karl Rahner
