One does not enter a temple, a shrine that encloses the holy and cuts it off from a godless and secular world which remains outside. Rather, in the free breadth of a divine world one erects a landmark, a sign of the fact that this entire world belongs to God, a sign precisely of the fact that God is adored, experienced, and accepted everywhere as the one who, through grace, has set all things free to attain to him, and a sign that this adoration takes place not in Jerusalem alone, but everywhere in spirit and truth.

-Karl Rahner, Considerations on the Active Role of the Person in the Sacramental Event, Theological Investigations 14
