“The world today is a very dry place, a spiritual desert.  The Church, which is meant to be an oasis or even a source of streams in the desert (see Isaiah 35:6) is too often just as dry as the world around it, and its preachers offer mere moralism instead of bracing good news, crusts of dry dogmas answering questions which nobody is really asking, instead of offering the bread of life to starving hungry hearts.”
