At "The Catholic Thing," Robert Royal has an essay on Vatican II that avoids some of the histrionics of the right, but offers, too, a thoughtful criticism of some of the ways we on the left have interpreted Vatican II. I do not always agree with Royal, in this piece or generally, but he is thoughtful and he avoids calumny. These days, that is an increasingly high bar for some on the right.
