"After the Council: Living Vatican II"

An interesting article in the July-August issue of Crisis Magazine (pointed out by Amy Welborn) discusses how many of the problems often blamed on Vatican II were the result of other factors.

The article is not perfect, but some good points are made.

In the end, however, historical analysis is good, but one must be careful, because rehashing old internal battles endlessly is not good.

We should be working together as a Church - hierarchy and laity, each in our own way as well as hand-in-hand as appropriate: adhering to the deposit of faith, worshipping in accord with that faith, living that faith, and spreading to those around us that faith in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
