      The Second Vatican Council Latin Concilium Oecumenicum Vaticanum Secundum, informally known as Vatican II addressed relations between the Roman Catholic Church and the modern world It was the twenty first ecumenical council of the Catholic Church and the second to be held at Saint Peter s Basilica in the Vatican The council, through the Holy See, formally opened under the pontificate of Pope John XXIII on 11 October 1962 and closed under Pope Paul VI on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on 8th December 1965.Several changes resulted from the council, including the renewal of consecrated life with a revised charism, ecumenical efforts towards dialogue with other religions, and the call to holiness for everyone including the laity, according to Pope Paul VI the most characteristic and ultimate purpose of the teachings of the Council.According to Pope Benedict XVI, the most important and essential message of the council is the Paschal Mystery as the center of what it is to be Christian and therefore of the Christian life, the Christian year, the Christian seasons Other changes which followed the council included the widespread use of vernacular languages in the Mass instead of Latin, the subtle disuse of ornate clerical regalia, the revision of Eucharistic prayers, the abbreviation of the liturgical calendar, the ability to celebrate the Mass versus populum with the officiant facing the congregation , as well as ad orientem facing the East and the Crucifix , and modern aesthetic changes encompassing contemporary Catholic liturgical music and artwork, many of which remain divisive among the Catholic faithful.

    • Gaudium et Spes is another document from the Second Vatican Council I find to be particularly farsighted and incredibly underrated. It works toward cementing the Church as a bastion of respect for human dignity and liberty. But it is distinguished from other unused conciliar documents in that it would be of particular use to the laity, as opposed to the clergy, in expressing the truths and wisdom of the Catholic faith. I speak in reference to the documents exposition on how a Catholic business o [...]


    • Gaudium et Spes or the "Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World", was the Second Vatican Council's response to the horrors the world had witnessed up to the early 1960s when it was published. Gaudium is the longest of the four constitutions produced by this Council and one of -- if not the longest -- document overall. In describing the relationship of the Church, the People of God, to the modern world, understandably there is a lot to say.Gaudium approaches the monumental task of [...]


    • As a "book", this is a good read. If anyone has ever doubted that the Church actually understands humanity or the world, they obviously have never read this "book"


    • Gaudium et Spes (GS), the PASTORAL Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, the longest document ever written for a council. Gaudium et spes as translated into English means "the joy and hope". A new called for Catholic-Christian humanism. Never in the history of Catholicism that the Church push over much a higher emphasis on temporal affairs and humanity compared to this document.As vision by Pope St John XXIII in his papal bull of Hurnanae Salutis, "In the presence of this twofold spect [...]


    • Una de las constituciones pastorales más importantes del Concilio Vaticano II, plantea una nueva postura y enfoque de la Iglesia hacia la sociedad contemporánea, abriéndose a compatibilizar la Verdad entregada por la fe y las enseñanzas del Evangelio con lo alcanzado por las ciencias y el humanismo, en particular las ciencias sociales (antropología, política, sociología, etc.).En esta Constitución Pastoral, mediante una mirada simplificada y general de la antropología cristiana y las tr [...]


    • Read for faculty discussion. Really helpful to hear about the background of this document and how it was created from my colleagues. Just another piece in my developing understanding of the Catholic Church!


    • GS 24 lead me to this lecture and I couldn't be disappointed! There is so much to learn and I almost regret that we never read this during school years. The way it covers so many topics is just wonderful!
