Vatican II in 2007

Before I get to bed tonight, let me outline the Vatican II plan for Catholic Sensibility in the new year. I hope to continue one or two-a-day posting on the last of the Vatican II documents we have yet to cover.

The ten other conciliar documents are already listed in the sidebar and are now fully archived by topic.

First up in 2007 will be a look at Orientalium Ecclesiarum, the decree on Eastern Rite Catholic Churches. Next, we’ll turn our attention to Unitatis Redintegratio, the decree on Ecumenism.

The remaining documents after that will be Inter Mirifica, the decree on the media of social communications, Ad Gentes, the decree on missionary activity, Perfectae Caritatis, the decree on the adaptation and renewal of religious life, and Gravissimum Educationis, the declaration on Christian education.

By my reckoning, these six remaining pieces contain about 144 sections, which should bring this phase of our Vatican II journey to and end somewhere around mid-Lent. As always, my colleague Neil is more than welcome to post on these Vatican II topics at any time. His offerings on previous documents are stored under his name, but also under the particular title of the conciliar constitution, decree, or declaration.

Needless to say, the commentariat may chime in at any time to add input.

    The granting of indults for non-jurisdictional persons to use pontificals was one of a myriad of personal honors that got simplified after the council. For an explanation of the preconciliar situation, read:
