The Second Vatican Council, Episode 17: Schools, Celibacy, the Religious Life, and Missions

Shorter, lesser-known schemas are the subject of this episode, but particularly relevant was Cardinal Suenens attack on religious: “the distinctive but ridiculous garb of many communities must be changed,” “outdated notions of the inferiority of women” must be abandoned, and “no sister should have to travel with a companion.” The hatred of the Modernists was open and obvious to anyone paying attention. Unfortunately while the Conservatives could see and hear, they did not name and shame, which may have gone some way to influencing public opinion.

If you would like to take an even closer look at the source material for these discussions, you can find a copy of The Rhine Flows Into the Tiber, at an excellent price, in our bookstore.
