Vatican II: Looking Back Can Help Us Move Forward

Pope John XXIII convened the Second Vatican Council out of a conviction that the Catholic Church needed to recognize that the world is not a hostile place and the church needed to re-engage its traditional sources of authority in order to be engaged with modern people, according to Vatican II scholar Catherine Clifford, professor of theology at St. Paul University, Ottawa. In a question-and-answer article on Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, Clifford says many Catholics do not yet understand the full scope of the voluminous material produced by one of the most important events in church history. In this exploration of Vatican II, Clifford explains the origins of Vatican II and introduces the range of material included in its work.
