Sample text

On the contrary, the church exists in the world 63 because it has to take the message of Christ to the world in view of the salvation of the entire humanity. 64 Thus, the church should not have a ghetto mentality but an attitude of openness to the world because it is its task to spread the message of salvation to all nations. In doing this, the church should display respect toward other Christian manifestations of various local churches regardless of the language, ecclesiastical practices, and traditions.

68 It is significant to notice that, for Küng, the church should never try desperately to find the word of Christ because the Holy The Holiness of the Church ● 33 Spirit will remind her of the Gospel. The church, however, must always be subject to the Spirit and should permanently listen to the Spirit. Küng stresses again here the Trinitarian dimension of church holiness as God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit works together in offering the Gospel to the church. So, the church is holy if it listens to the word of Christ, which is given to the church by God the Father through the Holy Spirit.

It is God who grants catholicity to the church and the church benefits from it. 48 Thus, transcendent catholicity must find its way into a practical or immanent catholicity. One should never forget that immanent catholicity as a feature of local churches49 in their historical activity is always the result of transcendent catholicity as directly given by God himself. So, transcendent catholicity as a gift of God is always the foundation of immanent catholicity as a task of local churches. As far as Christian communities are concerned, they must not take transcendent catholicity for granted as a gift of God but should rather strive for the progress of immanent catholicity.
