Quick Intro To Christian Faith

In a radio interview the late great Swiss Catholic Theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar once remarked that:

“We cannot really understand anything of Christ apart from the mystery of the Trinity

or

The Church without faith in Christ’s divinity & humanity.

We cannot understand anything of sacramental life apart from the bridal mystery between Church and Christ Himself.

So too, we cannot understand anything of the Christian life or morality without the Christian Faith, namely dogma.

All of these are held in creative dynamic tension:  That is Christian LIFE itself.
