"The spirit Works where he wills. The spirit of God cannot be restricted in his operation by the church; he is at work not only in the offices of the church, but where he wills: in the whole people of God. He is at work not only in the "holy city," but where he wills: in all the churches of the one Church. He is at work not only in the Catholic Church, but where he wiills: in Christianity as a whole. And finally he is at work not only in Christianity, but where he wills: in the whole world.
The power of the spirit of God can pass through all walls, even Church walls.....
No decrees of the Church, in doctrine or practice, can force him to act or not to act at a given time."
(Hans Küng. The Church)
