Catholic Learning Concerning Apostolicity and Ecclesiality

Catholic Learning Concerning Apostolicity and Ecclesiality

(p.181) 13 Catholic Learning Concerning Apostolicity and Ecclesiality
Receptive Ecumenism and the Call to Catholic Learning

James F. Puglisi, SA

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews some of the learnings gleaned from the various ecumenical discussions that have taken place on the theme of apostolicity. It is shown that there is now a general consensus about apostolicity, namely: that first and foremost apostolicity is applied to the whole church and not just to some elements of the church. In general, all recognize the place of the apostolic ministry within the apostolicity of the whole church. It is also recognized that there is an intimate relationship between the apostolic continuity of the whole church and the apostolic succession of the ministry.

Keywords:   apostolicity, church, succession, apostolic ministry
