Thoughts on Vatican II and a question for you
#70
Among the many factors that contributed to the crisis of faith after VII were two that were (still are) significant. First, the intent, subtlety and nuances of the original VII documents, were not immediately realized, and its promulgations were reduced to popular interpretations , ridiculed, and misled by a mainly secular (if not anti-Catholic) mass media. Second, the eras after 1960s coincided with an 'explosion' of a very cynical and rebellious culture - the age of Aquarius and Capricorn, the hippies, anti-establishment, libertine or existentialist Me-generation. secular if not anti-religion, etc. So the seeds were sown among many types of soil. Now we are seeing the fruits.
