Modern economic history has been dominated by the neo-classical economic model which has produced contemporary 'market society' with its all permeating commodifying logic. Contrary to the traditional capitalist priority of economic self-interest, Christian spirituality of social transformation upholds the necessity of covenantal civil society that prioritizes the wellbeing of the other as an indispensable part of a just global future.In view of that, the present work offers an exploration of the theological foundations of the Pentecost model of communal ecological economics and its underlying spirituality as following the pattern of God's generous redemptive self-sharing with humanity and the rest of creation. It further examines the relationship between Pentecost, sanctification and moral economic responsibility, and explores the function of the Eucharist in the faith community as a pedagogy of disciplining desires and teaching reverent consumption.
