The Council Goes Silent

Anybody know what happened to that fine effort, Conciliaria? I really enjoyed the historical perspective of the 1960’s, unfolding fifty years after various Catholic events or Catholic interpretations of timely events. The site’s had nothing since last June.

    Hi Todd,

    Readership remained low a year after launch. Then when Catholic News Service started publishing the Council Daybook in installments at http://vaticaniiat50.wordpress.com/ that covered the majority of what I had been posting. So it seemed that given my parish and work responsibilities, it was OK to leave that to someone who was getting paid to convert and post the content!

    Eric, given that the Conciliaria blog also seemed to have its own take I felt that, along with the CNS reports, it still had a role. Sorry to hear readership was low. PrayTell’s publication of extracts from Yves Congars diaries is commendable, and though I have the book, I still enjoy reading the extracts when they appear. Now possibly late in the day, but it would have been interesting if someone had taken on the task of posting extracts from Xavier Rynne and Ralph Wiltgen’s coverage. Thanks for the work you did. I am a moderator for a FB Catholic news group here in Japan, though our readership stretches beyond these islands. My own work commitments, some involvement in pastoral care of migrants, translation and editing work, and since last spring, heading the Diocesan Liturgical Commission mean I occassionally fall behind on updates, so I respect your decision.
