The 2008 Père Marquette Lecture in Theology, "Who Are the Church?" by Rev. Joseph A. Komonchak.
Komonchak explores the hypothesis that for every statement one makes about the Church, one should be ready to answer the question, "Of whom am I speaking?" He supports his position with St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas and relates his views to those of Hans Urs von Balthasar and Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J.
