The Phenomenality of the Sacrament

The Phenomenality of the Sacrament

(p.102) 8 The Phenomenality of the Sacrament
Believing in Order to See

Jean-Luc Marion

, Christina M. Gschwandtner
Fordham University Press

Marion argues that the sacrament as an issue of revelation has a particular phenomenality. He examines three main theological models for the sacrament and argues that in all three the phenomenality of the sacrament turns out to be one of self-givenness in utter abundance and abandonment. The phenomenon of the sacrament gives itself as pure gift and can hence serve also as the ultimate paradigm for the phenomenality of all phenomena.
