Reflections on the Letter to the Ephesians by Father Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the papal household. Asks the question: How can we read, "And Christ loved the Church" (Eph. 5:25), without asking the question, "And I? Do I love the Church?" The twentieth century was a time of theological ferment focusing attention on the nature of the Church, but, the author wonders, ""Was there a proportionate growth in love for the Church?"" Do we love the Church? Do we understand its nature? Do we weep over its sins or merely criticize? Are we building up or tearing down? Father Cantalamessa explores the Church as a building, body, bride, and mother. He also examines the family, the domestic church. Paperback, 8 x 5, 96 pages. (©2005)
