"The Catholic religious experience is sacramental: it encounters God in the events, objects, and persons of every day. The Catholic imagination is analogical: it pictures God as being similar to these events, objects and persons. The Catholic religious story is cosmic: it believes in happy ends in which grace routs both evil and injustice. The Catholic religious community is organic: it is based on a dense network of local relationships that constitute the matrix of everyday life."
....... Andrew Greeley, How to Save the Catholic Church
