Vatican II 50 years agoThe more things change, the more they stay the same. The tone of the debates about the document, “The Church in Modern World”,  during a two year discussion of the document that has shaped the church for 50 years, seems eerily reminiscent of the discussion of the Synod of Bishops.

Here, courtesy of Catholic News Services archives,  is a list of posts from the debates fifty years ago when the Second Vatican Council discussed the era- shaping documents.

By way of historical perspective … After all the debates over a two year period it was approved by a vote of 2,307 to 75 of the bishops assembled at the council. It was promulgated by Pope Paul VI on 7 December 1965, the day the council ended.
