From Eugene McCarraher’s, We Have Never Been Disenchanted:

[The] sacramental critique of Marxist metaphysics would not be that it is “too materialist” but rather that it is not materialist enough—that is, that it does not provide an adequate account of matter itself, of its sacramental and revelatory character. Sacramentality has ontological and social implications, for the “gift” that [Rowan] Williams identifies is “God’s grace and the common life thus formed.”

Romantic Sacramentalism, as McCarrher continues, reminds us “that our capacity to act well relies on our capacity to see what is really there. For there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of on Wall Street or in Silicon Valley.”
