Description

Totus Christus: Knowing and Loving the Son of Man

O Lord Jesus Christ, Thou Word of God and Son of Man, Creator and Redeemer,
possess our mind and conscience, our heart and imagination, by Thine indwelling Spirit;
that we and all people, may find and rest in that Love which is Thy very Self.

Description

“The Christian faith has only one subject, the mystery of Christ dead and risen. But this
unique mystery subsists under different modes: it is prefigured in the Old Testament, it is
accomplished in the earthly life of Christ, it is contained in the mystery of the sacraments, it is
lived mystically in souls, it is accomplished socially in the Church, it is consummated
eschatologically in the heavenly kingdom. Thus the Christian has at his disposition several
registers, a multi-dimensional symbolism, to express this unique reality.” (Jean Daniélou, ‘Le
Symbolisme des rites baptismaux’, Dieu vivant 1 (1945)” 15-43, p 17)

The purpose of this conference will be to examine some of the many registers of the mystery
of Christ, both historically and thematically. The title ‘the Son of Man’ also evokes the
different aspects of the whole Christ: the humanity and divinity of Christ, his earthly ministry,
his sacramental presence, and the eschatological consummation of his work. It is also a term
of relationship, suggestive of both the relations constitutive of the life of the Holy Trinity, and
also of the way that our knowing and loving the Son of Man is always an invitation to
communion - with the Triune God, as the Body of Christ, and for the life of the world.

As an expression of the conviction that the theme which we are considering is most helpfully
addressed from within the worshipping life of the Church, the conference will be framed and
interspersed with opportunities for collective worship, even if not all those attending the
conference are able to participate in all of this worship.

We trust that the papers will be accessible not only to academic theologians, but to a broader
community including theological students, lay members of the Church, clergy, and those
interested in the subject more generally. Another way of expressing this goal is that the papers
and the conference will have a pastoral as well as a theological element, an invitation to love
and to know the Son of Man who animates both our study and worship, and who inspires
transformed lives of worship, reflection, and service. It is our hope that, following the
Transforming Vision conference at the end of June 2016, this conference and others like it in
the future will contribute in a small way to that serious, disciplined, and patient recovery of
the Church’s memory, which shapes and encourages a renewed and renewing encounter with
the risen and ascended Christ, present in the Church and the world by the Holy Spirit.
