… and discovering a question from a seminarian:
In regards to Dei Verbum, Lumen Gentium, Gaudium et Spes, and Sacrosanctum Concilium, What is/are the most important common ideas? Why are they important? How do we know that they are important?
In a private reply, I mentioned their common sense of optimism, which seems a bit of a surprise, considering the backdrop of the early 60′s, and the shadow of nuclear armageddon.
Anybody have a better answer? I’m sure there must be other opinions on this.
