Explore the enduring power of Vatican’s II teachings in our day and age.

As John XXIII said, the Catholic Church is not a museum filled with artifacts, but rather “a flourishing garden of life” that moves ever forward into the future. This profound vision led him to convene a new ecumenical council, the first in almost a century. Now, just over fifty years after the Second Vatican Council, Catholics are still fully realizing that council’s bold vision for the Church.

In this audio or video series, you will look at Vatican II as a starting point for reflecting on the challenges facing the Catholic Church today. The council laid the foundations for a bold new vision of the church; now, it is our task to bring that vision to completion.

Your guide for this powerful exploration is Dr. Richard Gaillardetz (Ph.D., Notre Dame), the past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and a charismatic teacher. You will first look at the council in a broad historical context, exploring Vatican II as an event that revealed much about what it means to be Church. You will also explore the essential contributions of the council, considering how they might best be implemented in the Church today.

Thoughtful Catholics will find great insights into the life of the Church in Vatican II and the Church of the Third Millennium. Discover how to make the council’s bold vision a reality today.

Summer Survey: July 2017
A thoughtful scope of the topic presented in a non-polemical style. Persuasive and enlightening, but not breathlessly enthusiastic. Review by Tom Kiely, Milwaukee, WI (Posted on 7/26/2017)
Spring Survey: April 2017
Dr Gaillardetz is an engaging speaker, who leads a very coherent examination of this topic. The 12 lectures are easy to follow, and are a good cross section of the issues that both created the need for the Council and remain issues to be engaged today. Review by Deacon Dan Leetch Pueblo, CO, USA (Posted on 4/6/2017)
Greatly needed
An incredible number of Catholics are uninformed about the issues that led to Vatican II and the breath of fresh air it brought to the church. I have used this series with two groups who have loved it and some of them have borrowed it to share with other groups. I hope to do it again with more people. Review by PJ (Posted on 2/3/2017)
The course gave excellent insight into the Church before Vatican II and the new direction and understanding of the role and function the Church set upon with the Council.

Clear content.
This presentation put so much of the Council's teachings in a clear context which I (age 70) could easily relate to.
