The second day of this year’s Theological Institute focused on the first two documents that are the heart of Vatican II as well as the death of Pope John XXIII — and it was all layered in scholarship, personal recollections, laughter and even a few tears.

“Understanding Vatican II,” which will continue through Sunday, is being presented at the Nazareth Motherhouse by Dr. Catherine Michaud, a theologian and a Sister of St. Joseph of Concordia.
Sister Catherine has focused on the documents of Vatican II during her 25-plus years as a professor of theology at Marymount College and St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn.
In three segments today, she walked the 75-plus participants through the opening of the Council in 1962 and the Sancrosanctum Concilium (or Document on the Liturgy) and the Dei Verbum (or the Constitution on Divine Revelation).
A discussion scheduled for this evening will allow participants more time to share about how Vatican II touched their lives.
