By Paul Lakeland
Lumen Gentium, Vatican II's Dogmatic structure at the Church, replaced how the church thinks concerning the laity, holiness, baptism, or even the nature and function of the church itself. In A Council that might by no means End, the extremely popular ecclesiologist Paul Lakeland marks the 50th anniversary of this document's promulgation via taking on 3 significant subject matters of the structure, reading the textual content, and choosing many of the questions with which it leaves us. those issues are
- the position of the bishop within the church and the methods Lumen Gentium's educating pertains to a number of tensions in trendy church
- the laity and particularly the combined blessing of describing them in the class of "secularity"
- and the relationships among the church and the humans of God and what they let us know concerning the ways that everybody are provided salvation.
Lakeland is confident that Lumen Gentium leaves a lot unfinished company (as any ancient record must), that attending to it's going to take us past a lot of the now sterile ecclesial divisions, and that the ecclesiology of humility it implies marks the best way that theology needs to advisor the church within the years ahead.
