Brunero Gherardini THE ECUMENICAL VATICAN COUNCIL II A MUCH NEEDED DISCUSSION

An important new book on Vatican II has just reached me from a kind brother priest, Fr Taylor - thank you, Father. At last, somebody right at the heart of the Vatican is arguing robustly for the points long made by SSPX. I shall be taking a careful look at it after the Pascha. Publisher: cm.editrice@immacolata.ws

Important is not just the book itself, but the fact that such a debate can happen within the Church. Two or three years ago when the Good Shepherd people in Bordeaux regularised their position with the Holy See, they were told that they didn't need to change any of their views, but simply to carry on the debate within the Church. And more recently Anglicanorum coetibus refrained from imposing upon Ordinariates any baggage beyond the contents of the Catechism.

Happy, open-minded, days! A golden Age for those who long for Unity! A thousand flowers blossoming under an enlightened Pontificate!

Get the book and read it!
