All About Mary
After recalling the doxology of St. DV is closely linked and makes frequent reference to the Second Vatican Council: For the Conciliar texts, thanks to their teaching dominkm the Church in herself and the Church in the world, move us to penetrate ever deeper into the Trinitarian mystery of God himself … to the Father, through Christ, in the Holy Spirit” DV 2. Again, as with the previous, the impending approach of envclica third Christian millennium forms a crucial horizon within which the present reflection on the Holy Spirit takes place.
Of special importance in this context is the role of the Ejcclica “as the one who points out the ways leading to the union of Christians” DV vigificantem ; Christian ecumenism is an especially prominent dimension of the millennial commemoration. The text of DV moves in three main parts: First, there is the farewell discourse of Jesus at his final meal with his disciples John In this scene “the highest point of the revelation of the Trinity is reached” DV 9.
Here Jesus begins to disclose the personal role that the Spirit will play in communicating the Gospel to the world: John Paul then makes the obvious point: The second Upper Fivificantem scene takes place on the evening of the first Easter Sunday, according to John Jesus breathes on his disciples and says to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
The further giving of the Holy Spirit to the world takes place in the third Upper Room scene, on the day of Pentecost. Thus the era of the Church begins, and the Holy Spirit is precisely the soul of this new body. The fourth evocation of the Upper Room concerns the Church’s fidelity to its mission, which requires it always to be attentive to the circumstances of its beginning.
Spiritually the event of Pentecost does not belong only to the past; the Church is always in the Upper Room that she bears in her heart” DV DV explores the “double rhythm” of salvation history, the “rhythm of the mission of the Son” and the “rhythm of the mission of the Holy Spirit,” both sent into the world by the Father DV The articulation of eh crucial principle of Trinitarian theology reflects a recovered attention to pneumatology, especially in the self-understanding of Western Christianity.
The missions of the Son and the Spirit are intimately co-related; the Spirit’s role is precisely to make the Son more fully known in the world.
Dominum et vivificantem (18 May ) | John Paul II
The Spirit helps us to dojinum the total gift that Christ made of himself for our sake; on this basis, then, people are called, with the help of the same Spirit, to find themselves fully through a sincere gift of self. This idea, often cited by John Paul from Gaudium et spes, “can be said to sum up the whole of Christian anthropology” DV The theme of gift, of mutual giving and receiving among persons, aptly sums up Christian anthropology precisely because it is also definitive of God’s very life.
It is the Holy Spirit who is the personal expression of this self-giving, of this being-love” DV For the text of Dominum et vivificantem, see: Acta Apostolicae Sedis 78 — Latin ; Origins 16, no.
