Quotes on Charisms in the Church

From Deep Furrows: Three quotes on charisms in the Church:

"The Church is no abstract entity; only real, corporeal persons participate in her. They are ecclesial to the degree in which their personal mission - Origen speaks of an anima ecclesiastica [ecclesiastical soul] - their charism, extends into the reality of the universal Church, as happens, in the case of prayer, for instance, or of suffering."

See the whole post, quotes from a conversation between Hans Urs von Balthasar and Angelo Scola.
