Will the REAL Vatican II Please Stand Up - CD set
Fr. Patrick Brannan, S.J.
“Will the real Vatican II please stand up?” The Catholic faithful have been pleading for a straight answer to this question for over forty years. The dramatic changes that have swept through the Church in the last generation have left many Catholics confused and conflicted in their faith. Yet those responsible have invariably appealed to the Council or even a vague “Spirit of Vatican II” to justify even the most radical innovations and teachings. Was Vatican II really “a new beginning?” Or must the Council be understood “in light of Tradition?”
Now on CD, Fr. Patrick Brannan reveals the authentic teaching of the fundamental document of Vatican II, the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium. A Jesuit for over fifty years, and a gifted linguist, Father Brennan was personally involved in the Council. Although Vatican II was primarily a “pastoral council,” Father reveals that Lumen Gentium was one of two dogmatic statements in which the Council explicitly and formally proclaimed the Church’s teaching on fundamental issues of our Faith.
to the Nations
More than any other document of Vatican II, Lumen Gentium (Light to the Nations) reveals the council’s desire to proclaim the Gospel and bring the light of Christ to all men. As you listen, you’ll uncover how it sets forth the nature of the Church’s mission according to the tradition of earlier councils, but in a way that speaks to everyone, not just Catholics. Because the Church is the source of Christ’s light and she wants to share it with the whole world.
All Catholics know that the Church is hierarchical, but the lines that separate the work of the clergy and the laity have been blurred, causing great confusion. But was this mandated by the council? As Father unpacks how Lumen Gentium actually maintains the fundamental distinction in the Church between clergy and laity, you’ll discover what it means that we are all one body, but different members. And how all the baptized share in the priestly, kingly and prophetic offices of Christ.
of the Church
Lumen Gentium closes with a section on the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Mother of God, the Mother of the Church, and the Model Christian. Originally intended as a separate document, you’ll learn why the council Fathers insisted on making Marian doctrines an integral part of the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church. Because, as Father explains, understanding Mary is absolutely essential to understanding the Church.
