The French Dominican, Fr. Yves Congar, was once deeply confident that during the church's ongoing rigidity with the secular international it used to be resulted in undertake greatly an identical attitudes because the temporal strength itself, to conceive of itself as a society, as an influence, while in truth it used to be a communion, with ministers and servants. It used to be Congar's lifelong theological venture to aid restoration to the church a extra evangelical, gospel-based realizing of her existence. From the titanic corpus of this nice specialist of the second one Vatican Council, this e-book gathers his efforts as they pertain in particular to the problem of authority within the church. the customarily hot-button nature of any dialogue on how authority is exercised within the church will simply enjoy the retrieval of the theological culture in this factor introduced forth via Congar. Congar's imaginative and prescient eventually calls for that our realizing of authority needs to movement from our knowing of God as a Trinity of people and, as a result, be practiced within the mutuality of dating and constantly be directed at progress in actual relationship.
Fr. Anthony Oelrich is a clergyman of the Diocese of St. Cloud, Minnesota, serving as rector and pastor of 3 parishes and the diocesan director of continuous schooling for clergy. He obtained his doctorate in theology from the Pontifical college of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome.
