Flesh of the Church, Flesh of Christ
At the Source of the Ecclesiology of Communion
AUTHOR: J M R Tillard
J M R Tillard in this significant work on ecclesiology of communion addresses such questions as: How does the ecclesiology of communion go back "to the very sources of the great ecclesial tradition?" How should we understand that through the Eucharist, the Church is " a graft of communion on the wounded body of humankind torn by dissension?" How should we explain that a Christian "is never alone, even before God?" How should we perceive that the church "is a communion before being a society, a mystery before being a structure?"
