Heschel with Augustin Cardinal Bea †, the first President of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity

Zion is in ruins, Jerusalem lies in the dust. All week there is only hope of redemption. But when the Sabbath is entering the world, man is touched by a moment of actual redemption; as if for a moment the spirit of the Messiah moved over the face of the earth.

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath
