Abstract

This paper discusses the Pauline Blessing (Second Corinthians 13:13) now commonly referred to as "the Grace," with specific reference to the third component, the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Part I explores the various interpretations of koinonia in New Testament writings; references to the Pauline Blessing are examined in the writings of the Church Fathers, and incorporation of the formula into early church liturgy, and its continuance to modern times, are discussed. Part II considers contemporary understandings of koinonia , especially in connection with the ecumenical movement beginning in the early decades of the twentieth century.
