"Just like juridicial organization, theological reflection is always only subsequent to the unfailing instinct that guides the tradition of the Church, and makes her discern, with eyes fixed on Jesus, what best agrees with the spirit of the New Covenant. But even if theological reflection invents nothing, it can bring to light and justify some of the motivations behind the practice. Another of our contemporaries, Heinrich Schlier, who is not only an exegete of the first order, but also a profound Christian thinker, comes to the same conclusion by a slightly different route: 'The controversy about ministry in the Church has not ceased, and it can no longer be said that its end is in sight . . .'"
