The Universal Presence of Christ and the Spirit

(p.207) 14 The Universal Presence of Christ and the Spirit
Salvation for All

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

Oxford University Press

This chapter aims to exploit the language of ‘presence’ to give an understanding on the mysterious activity of Christ and the Holy Spirit in the whole world. It mentions that St. Paul pictured the life of Christians as their being ‘in Christ’ and the Holy Spirit being ‘in them’. It argues that it may be possible that the Holy Spirit is also ‘in’ those who have not been baptized because Christ denies no one. In this case, it is worth developing the theme of the universal presence of divine Wisdom.

Keywords:   universal presence of Christ, universal presence of the Holy Spirit, Christ—human relationship, divine wisdom, St. Paul, Christian life
