Remembering, and Mis-Remembering, Vatican II | National Catholic Reporter by MSW. MGB: The issue on retrenchment is not Ratzinger but Blessed John Paul II. We was in the old school, rather firmly, and has left the Church filled with those who share his views - often those who are not even old enough to remember life before the Council, although their parents may have raised them as if no Council exists (which is why there is any debate at all about sexual morality). Pope Benedict now has to sort out the damage and undo some of what his old boss put in, without making it look like he is doing so. How he sets the tone in the New Evangelization will provide a clue on this. If he brings it back to the message of the empty tomb and the role of the Church in witnessing that fact, then there is hope. If, on the other hand, this becomes an exercise is hitting the laity over the head on the issues of legal abortion, marriage equality and contraception, it will be a wasted exercise.
