Quote

"In this too the principle of analogy protects us, for as the self-emptying Christ comes more and more to resemble us in the form of our utter powerlessness and meaninglessness, there remains the ever-greater dissimilarity of the reality of his identity as very God, which must ultimately break through the bonds with which we are fettered.  It is a descent in order to rise again, and this dimension is always in view, even and perhaps especially in the most tragic moments."
from Christ and Analogy: The Metaphysics of Hans Urs von Balthasar, p. 143
