Confusion after Vatican II matches pattern of Church history, cardinal notes
Catholic World News - August 28, 2012
In an interview with Vatican Insider, Cardinal Walter Brandmüller says that Catholics should not be surprised by the continuing confusion over the teachings of Vatican II, even 50 years after the Council.
Church history shows that it is common for decades to pass before the faithful fully adjust to the teachings of a council, the cardinal observes. He notes that Christological disputes continued to rage for a century after the Council of Nicea. “Frankly, even the Council of Trent was not very fruitful until the Golden Jubilee of 1596,” the German cardinal adds.
