That is, in the context where man’s traditions predominate and are even quite fixed in people’s consciences, there has to come a revelation of the Church which is powerful enough to over-rule the rule of man. This is why the beginnings of such a corporate expression, the laying of the foundation, may be painfully slow, as we are talking about revelation, not something which can be imparted into people at our will.
