Abstract: Catholics have turned back on the contemporary Church, its practices and institutional structures because they question its credibility as a witness for Christ in what it “is”, it says and does. There is, therefore, a crisis of the forma ecclesiae that introduces the question of what is the form of the Church, which is more appropriate to allow the credible proclamation of the Gospel in the world today. This Master’s dissertation thus treats “La forma ecclesiae comme langage” (the forma ecclesiae as a language) in three chapters. The first presents the concept of forma ecclesiae in the literature and highlights some aspects put forward by the Second Vatican Council. The second deals with the life of the Church as a sign through the development of the concept of the Church as “sacrament of salvation”, stressing that all of its life is testimony. The third, presents the vocation of the Church, which is to proclaim the Gospel, even since the publication of the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii nuntiandi of pope Paul VI, and focuses also on the reformatio of the Church implied by the proclamation of the Gospel found in the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium of pope Francis.
