CCC Artwork for podcast Section 31803-1845. Virtue is defined as a habitual and firm disposition to do good. The Human Virtues are attainable to all without the assistance of faith. They are acquired by human effort and are the fruit of morally good acts. Traditionally these are described as the Cardinal Virtues of Prudence, Justice, Fortitude and Temperance. The Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity relate directly to God and adapt man’s faculties for participation in the divine nature.

Theology Doctrine and the Church podcast artworkIn this second talk on the relationship between Christ and his Church Fr Guy looks at the profound union that between them using scriptural images such as the Vine, the Body of Christ and the Eucharist. On the external level the Church appears to be a human institution, the reality is that her nature is divine. …‘now, you together are Christ’s body; but each of you is a different part of it….’ 1 Corinthians 12: 27.

This is the final talk given by Fr Guy de Gaynesford on 12 August 2014 at Buckfast Abbey, as part of the Summer School course ‘Finding Faith through Theology’ offered by the School of the Annunciation.   For more information on the School of the Annunciation go to this link.

Theology Doctrine and the Church podcast artworkFr Guy explores the relationship between Christ and his Church. In this first talk he looks at what Christ gives to the Church using the image of St Paul as Christ as the Bridegroom and the Church as the Bride:‘Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her to make her holy. He made her clean by the washing of water with a form of words, so that when he took her to himself she would be glorious….’ Ephesians 5: 25-27. Christ is her Saviour, her Teacher, her Model.
