Back to Economics

I've mentioned spiritual economy once before in relation to atonement. One must atone for sin, a feat made possible only through Christ's ultimate atonement.

But the term used in the CCC is 'economy of salvation'. What does this term mean? The index of the CCC only points me to passages where the phrase is used, not definitions of the term itself.

Once again, Second Exodus comes to my aid. But they tie it in with liturgy. I thought it referred to the accumulation of acts of good faith versus temporal punishments due for sin. Now I'm more confused than ever.

In the meanwhile I've stumbled on some gems: a letter from Paul VI, the CCC's entire section on Liturgy, and this was SO unexpected. I'll see if Scott Hahn proves helpful.
