The Meaning of the Church

By Romano Guardini
The Meaning of the Church is a masterful examination of the Catholic Church as a living reality, the “Body of Christ, mystically living on” and bearing “the fullness of salvation.” Delving deeply into the nature of freedom, of personal identity, and of community, Guardini develops a profound articulation of ecclesiology that places the Church at the heart of a meaningful existence. Eloquent, enlightening, and exceptionally relevant, The Meaning of the Church presents an invaluable opportunity to meditate upon the true origin, nature, and destiny of the Church of Jesus Christ.
“For ‘the Word was made Flesh,’ and the Church is simply Christ, living on, as the content and form of the society He founded. ”– Romano Guardini
