A timely thought from Merton

I have no idea where I found this (somewhere in Merton's last decade of journals), but here it is:
The great hope of our time is, it seems to me, not that the Church will become again a world power and dominant institution, but on the contrary that the power of faith and the spirit will shake the world when Christians have lost what they held on to and have ventured into the eschatological kingdom—where in fact they are!”
