Misericordia - but also radicality

In the context of misericordia, the Year of Mercy, also this call to radicality:
There are no degrees to this all. It is a call into a place outside [ein Ausserhalb].  This place cannot be comprehended in any worldly sense. And the leaving is definitive and absolute, even if it must be repeated every day, in the small renunciations of every day. [von Balthasar, The Christian State of Life, 149.]
  “If a person is serious about this all, it is unthinkable that he should just continue to live in the world as he has been doing.” [149.]
