Reflections on Spirituality and the Church

Tony Kelly CSsR


This article ponders the separation occurring between spirituality and ecclesial existence. In contesting generalisations such as "organised religion" and "institutional Church," it argues for a more ecclesial spirituality and points to some of the pitfalls involved in a "generic" spirituality, especially the problem of it being colonised by political ideologies.
