The crisis is simply: can Germany take its place in the brotherhood of nations as a compassionate player and participant? This is critically important for Germany's soul life, given its history of bringing in two world wars. Has there been, essentially, a true growth and evolution - yes, evolution - of Germany's soul toward a mature sense of responsibility for what she caused through a capacity to demonstrate compassion and responsibility outside herself for the health of Europe's and probably the world's economy.
Put another way, having pushed the world into crises of two world wars, can she - does she have the heart - to prevent another crisis on a global scale?
We wait to see the "fruit" of this soul crisis, for "as a (country) thinketh in its heart, so is it."
Meanwhile, any simple heart-felt prayer for Germany can only help.
