Forgotten pope

By

While Popes John XXIII and John Paul II were being canonized in St. Peter’s Square last April 27, before what some estimate as the largest crowd gathered in Europe for a religious purpose in living memory, Pope Paul VI rested in his quiet dark tomb under the high altar of St. Peter’s Basilica.

One ‘Galileo case’ is enough for the Church

By

I got a copy of the paperback edition of “What Happened at Vatican II” by John W. O’Malley, SJ, and it is a fascinating read. O’Malley is the author of three other books, all published, like his fourth, by Harvard University Press.

Uplifting summary

This refers to Prof. Asuncion Maramba’s commentary titled “Time to revisit Vatican II” (Inquirer, 11/26/12). After feeling depressed over the prognosis for the reproductive health bill, seemingly, in part, because of the fear of clericalism, I was uplifted by her succinct summary of Vatican II. Although the council’s thrust has been temporarily blunted, there is, as she says, a scope for hope. I enjoyed the quote from John XXIII about “inches of condemnation.” I have not read that before.
