"

A great statement about how what appears to be betrayal is really obedience.

"Change is only betrayal if we forget that the CENTER of tradition, the heart of what we hand on as saving faith, is the possibility of new beginnings and the truth that our errors of interpretation are not the last word in a community which exists because of a belief in the indestructability of God’s commitment."

It takes a lot of courage and humility to live like that. For the sake of the world, church, lets get on with the sacred work of betraying the harmful barriers created by the edges of our traditions to obey the center of our Tradition.
