The Second Vatican Council was an event of conversion for the participating bishops, and the council’s documents propose a vision for the conversion of the Catholic ecclesial imagination. The author argues that this ecclesial conversion entails a refashioning of the Catholic Church’s understanding of the divine-human relationship in history. This relationship includes the divine-ecclesial relationship and, consequently, relationships within the Church. The article concludes by examining two particular dimensions of the council’s call for ongoing ecclesial conversion that remain unfulfilled.
