Ecclesiam Apostolicam

Introduction to “Ecclesiam Apostolicam”

Posted on January 9, 2012 in Ecclesiam Apostolicam, Nature of the Church

The Fall, 2011 issue of Communio inaugurates a new four-year-long series devoted to the mystery of the Church as one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. “These four characteristics, inseparably linked with each other, indicate essential features of the Church and her mission. The Church does not possess them of herself; it is Christ who, through the Holy Spirit, makes his Church one, holy, catholic, and apostolic, and it is he who calls her to realize each of these qualities.”
