A Holy Yet Sinful Church

Three Twentieth-Century Moments in a Developing Theology
  • By Jeanmarie Gribaudo
This text examines three key moments in the developing theology of the church s holiness and sinfulness in the twentieth century: the" ressourcement" movement of the 1930s to the 1950s, the Second Vatican Council (1962 65), and the pontificate of John Paul II (1978 2005).
The aim of this text is to make accessible the works of Emile Mersch, Henri de Lubac, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Yves Congar, Karl Rahner, and Charles Journet that discuss the holiness and sinfulness of the church and to demonstrate how these works were influential in composing the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, "Lumen Gentium." The author then considers how this developing theology is put into practice in Pope John Paul II s millennial program, which centers on admitting that the church in its members has sinned and needs to seek forgiveness."
