Great Grace Conference - Receiving Vatican II Today

Workshop - How the Church has fared since the second Vatican Council - Archbishop Wilson


In this workshop I would like to explore the experience of the Church since the closure of the Second Vatican Council in 1965. An examination of the hopes and expectations that abounded at the end of the Council and some of the griefs that people experienced, and what they considered to be the imperfect application of the Council's insights to the life of the Church. My aim would be to point out that, in my opinion, the positives outnumbered the negatives. In my presentation, I will make special reference to the 1983 Code of Canon Law.
