9780898708929: Priesthood and Diaconate: The Recipient of the Sacrament of Holy Orders from the Perspective of Creation Theology and Christology

Pope John Paul II's apostolic letter, Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, confirmed that conferring Holy Orders on men only is a matter pertaining to divine revelation that has consistently been taught by the universal and ordinary Magisterium of the Church, and hence is to be definitively held by all the faithful. Thus, the Church's practice is not a concession to the customs of an age, but is founded upon a theology of the sexes, which is based on the relationship of man and woman originating in creation itself. This relationship is sanctified to the utmost in the Sacrament of Matrimony, as the concrete symbol of God's love for mankind. God's own self-communication is inscribed in this marital consecration when Christ, being the representative of the Father, presents himself as the Bridegroom of the Church, his Bride. Furthermore, this spousal relationship between Christ and the Church is reflected in the Sacrament of Holy Orders and the male recipient's relation to the Church, which stands in relation to him as a feminine reality. This book thoughtfully explores the Church's understanding of the ministerial priesthood and the diaconate.

About the Author:

Cardinal Gerhard MUller is the Prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Formerly the bishop of Regensburg, Germany, and a professor of theology, he is president of both the Pontifical Biblical Commission and the International Theological Commission. He is also the author of many books, including The Hope of the Family and Priesthood and Diaconate.

Review:


"Muller offers us an irrefutable case, based on theological sources, for the Church's teaching and practice since the time of the Apostles of conferring the sacrament of Holy Orders on baptized males only."
--
Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., Editor, Homiletic & Pastoral Review

Book Description Ignatius Press, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The renowned Swiss theologian offers in this little book very beautiful and practical reflections for praying and living the 15 mysteries of the Rosary. He makes the profound truths and events of our salvation take on a freshness and splendor by allowing the reader to enter his own contemplation of the mysteries. Von Balthasar s theology is a theology that does not read like theology, but one that derives from prayer and leads back to prayer. Contemplating each of the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries, with his focus on Jesus giving himself for us - and Mary s part in it - Von Blathasar leads the reader to see that Christian prayer can attain to God only along the path God himself has trod - a God who not only addresses his Word to us, but makes it live among us. Von Balthasar says his meditations are designed to free the prayer of the Rosary from a certain narrowness, alien to Mary s own spirit and easily leading to monotony, and to nourish it . . . with the fullness of God s saving thoughts and saving deeds for the world.
