107. Ratzinger, Das neue Volk, 95. 46 47 AFTER OUR LIKENESS Ratzinger: Communion and the Whole 3. "111 Next to transtemporality, communicability is the most important characteristic of tradition as collective memory. From this it follows, Ratzinger claims, that tradition cannot live without the bearer of tradition; the latter can only be a certain community of discourse. Ratzinger is not satisfied, however, with merely establishing the connection between tradition and community of discourse. His ecclesiology, whose foundation is the subjectivity of the church with Christ, requires that this community of discourse be understood in a particular way.
2. "140 If it were such, then every person would have to "distill out" his or her own life philosophy alone, though now no longer from scripture, but rather from the wisdom of faith of the entire church. This in its own turn would mean for Ratzinger that Christian truth ultimately is a product of the reflection of the individual rather than a gift. One receives truth only if access to it is communal, only if one does not select it oneself (as in modern supermarkets), that is, only if it is given to one by the church (as in old stores).
