The subversion of Vatican II

 |  NCR Today

De LaSalle Br. Louis DeThomasis, president of Christian Brothers Investment Services, is also the former president of St. Mary's University of Minnesota and the author of Flying in the Face of Tradition: Listening to the Lived Experience of the Faithful, published by ACTA Publications.

The book offers a timely reflection on the presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church. He concludes: "Yet now, more than ever, those of us who believe in the vision of Vatican II cannot back down from speaking the truth as we see it. The institutional church needs to respond in a vitally new and more effective way to Vatican II that will allow the church to once more 'teach as Jesus did.' "

Read his latest column, "The Subversion of Vatican II."
