Pope Benedict talks to priests about Vatican II

One of the pillars of the Year of Faith is the 50th anniversary of Vatican II. It's a great time to read the documents of the council and learn more about it. You can find the documents online on the official Vatican Year of Faith web site.

On February 14, Pope Benedict met with priests and clergy of the Diocese of Rome. He spoke to them about his pending resignation, and also of his memories of Vatican II as a consultant. Read the article here.

Catholic News Service has an article here: "... the pope said that the 'true council,' which was based on faith, is today 'emerging with all its spiritual strength,' and he called on his listeners to 'work so that the true council with the power of the Holy Spirit is realized and the church is really renewed'."


  1. There are horrible people who, instead of solving a problem, tangle it up and make it harder to solve for anyone who wants to deal with it. Whoever does not know how to hit the nail on the head should be asked not to hit it at all. For more info see the link below.
