Summary

Vatican II laid theological foundations for understanding the church as the Christian faithful through its emphases on baptism and the work of the Holy Spirit. These foundations include ecclesial metaphors that speak to both unity and diversity among the faithful; the faithful’s participation in the mystery of the incarnation and the paschal mystery; and God’s calling of the faithful to the immanent and eschatological work of building the kingdom.
