Day 2: Deep look at Vatican II documents begins

July 26, 2013 by

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.
