“A certain degree of unclarity” Observations on The Local and the Universal Dimensions of the Church from a Roman Catholic Perspective
Abstract:In this assessment of The Local and the Universal Dimensions of the Church ecclesiological issues such as the relation between Church and Trinity, the sacramentality and the catholicity of the Church, the threefold ministry and the appeal to divine right are treated. The plea for an adequate parallelism in Church structures is investigated in dialogue with The Church as Konionia of Salvation (2005). The decision of this document to opt for the term 'intermediate level' because of its unclarity is positively welcomed.
