Simone Weil y explique pourquoi elle ne peut demander le baptême : "S'il était concevable qu'on se damne en obéissant à Dieu et qu'on se sauve en lui désobéissant, je choisirais quand même l'obéissance" (p18); sa vocation, telle qu'elle l. a. despatched, est d'être en touch avec tous les milieux humains. L’Église se présente, en tant que corps social, comme un shelter défendant ses valeurs à l. a. manière des patriotismes; comme tout corps social, elle entraîne ses membres dans un système de valeurs qui les coupe du reste de l'humanité.
