Guilt and Sins of (in) the Church

A Systematic Theological Investigation
Can the Church be sinful? The tension between the Church's holiness and sinfulness that has hardly been a topic, as well as the largely unanswered question of whether the Church itself can become guilty, both stand in the way of recognizing its responsibility in acts of violence: If the existing understanding of the Church doesn't allow us to think that the Church could become guilty, then this conclusion also must not be allowed. Consequently, there would also be no reason to confess that the Church is guilty. However, the fact that Church confessions of guilt already existed in the past is a first indication that the Church's capacity for guilt is at least not implicitly ruled out. The current study asks for a closer definition of the Church's capacity for guilt. It analyses the Church's understanding of the Second Vatican Council with regard to whether it offers approaches for an ecclesiological recognition and integration of systemic guilt. As a result, it impressively confirms the thesis that a problematic over-stylisation of the Church's holiness is responsible for a suppression of the topic of sin and guilt from the Church's reflection processes.
Systematic theological examination of the relationship between guilt, sin and holiness
Guilt of and in the church as an explosive topic: sexual violence, financial fiascos, etc.
