Bishop Bill Morris on reclaiming Vatican II

 |  NCR Today

By way of the Australian Web site Catholica, edited by Brian Coyne, a talk by Australian Bishop Bill Morris on reclaiming the spirit of Vatican II. You may recall that Morris was sacked in 2011 by Pope Benedict XVI, with the help of a secret report fashioned by Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia. The investigation of Morris was occasioned in large part by a pastoral letter in which he suggested that, given the priest shortage and subsequent pastoral problems, the church should  discuss other possibilities, including ordaining women.

Morris in this talk speaks  of the vital role of laity in translating the Second Vatican Council  and reclaiming its spirit. Not a bad Holy Week reflection.
