Ecclesial conversion after Vatican II: renewing the 'Face of the Church' to reflect 'The Genuine Face of God'
Rush, Ormond. (2015) Ecclesial conversion after Vatican II: renewing the 'Face of the Church' to reflect 'The Genuine Face of God'. In In D. Schultenover (Ed.). 50 years on: Probing the riches of Vatican II pp. 155 - 174 Liturgical Press, the.
The Second Vatican Council was an event of conversion for the participating bishops, and the council’s documents propose a vision for the conversion of the Catholic ecclesial imagination. The author argues that this ecclesial conversion entails a refashioning of the Catholic Church’s understanding of the divine-human relationship in history. This relationship includes the divine-ecclesial relationship and, consequently, relationships within the Church. The article concludes by examining two particular dimensions of the council’s call for ongoing ecclesial conversion that remain unfulfilled.
