New CNA column helps readers understand the teachings of Vatican II

.- Even though January 25, 2009 marked the 50th anniversary of the convocation of the Second Vatican Council, many Catholics remain unsure as to what the Council Fathers truly taught and intended.  Louie Verrecchio, CNA’s newest columnist plans to explore the teachings of the council to help Catholics comprehend their authentic application in the life of the Church today.

With a particular focus on current events and the challenges commonly faced by Catholics worldwide, Verrecchio’s column, “Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II” contains excerpts taken directly from the Council documents.  As such, the columns will serve to dispel the many false “spirit of Vatican II” interpretations that are all too frequently presented as indicating the “mind of the Council Fathers.”  

Verrecchio, author of the “Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II” adult faith formation series, explains that his commentary “will lead readers to a deeper understanding of the conciliar texts as illuminated by the light of sacred Tradition; applying what Pope Benedict XVI calls ‘a hermeneutic of continuity and authentic reform.’ Many will come away from the Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II columns motivated to at long last answer the call of the Holy Fathers to explore the Council documents directly in order to unearth the beautiful treasures of faith contained therein.”

Verrecchio’s column will be updated each Thursday and can be found in the menu box at the bottom of the page or by following this link:  http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/columns.php?sub_id=22
