Catholics are supposed to obey authority. If the pre-V2 authority was "trustworthy" then how can you say the laity should have been TOO trusting of Catholic authority. The problem was SIN...people needed to amend their lives and stop offending God, especially in the public forum.

This ecclesiological crisis is a consequence of sin, and NOT due to too much"trust" in the Authority of the Church (that Christ founded and shed His precious Blood for).

Well, that is exactly it. The authority of the Church that Christ founded and shed his Precious Blood for -  suddenly changed everything that was previously taught for centuries to be unchangeable.
As a Catholic, we MUST obey proper authority, but, like St. Thomas More said (in Man for all seasons).....I am the King's (Church's) good servant - BUT GOD'S FIRST.
