The Spirituality of the Second Vatican Council

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9780809148707


This book presents the rich spirituality that Vatican II offers to all the faithful, a spirituality that has been widely neglected. Debates over the Council’s theological and pastoral teaching continue to distract attention from the Council’s central message about the universal call to holiness. Such holiness attends to the manifold presence of the risen Christ, the life of the liturgy, the Scriptures that lead and feed us, the prophetic, priestly and pastoral mission of all believers, and the need to hear the cry of the poor. Gerald O’Collins opens up some of the spiritual treasures to be found in the Vatican II documents, an area that has seldom come into view.
