Thank you to all of you who joined us for the Thomas Toast. By all accounts, it was a great success. Thank you to our panelists. Great to see some familiar faces. Our next monthly meeting will be held on Friday, February 12th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “The Body and the Bride of Christ: The Church as One Unique Transcendent Subject” by Roch Kereszty from the Summer 2019 (Volume 46.2) issue of Communio entitled Mary, Motherhood, and the Church.
The PDF can be downloaded here.
The following is taken from the Introduction to the issue:
Roch Kereszty, in “The Body and the Bride of Christ: The Church as One Unique Transcendent Subject,” explains the sense in which the Church subsists as a single agent. The Church’s oneness, Kereszty argues, is more radical than the collective interaction of her members; it is a unity of being whose principle is the Holy Spirit. “Just as he unites Father and Son while preserving their personal differences, so does the Spirit respect and perfect the personal and vocational differences of all those whom he unites with each other and with the Son.” The unity the Spirit produces in the Church appears above all in her character as Bride, a character personally exemplified in the Virgin Mother of God.
We will be holding an online only meeting.
