The Second Vatican Council, Episode 5: End of the First Session and Death of John XXIII

This episode discusses the end of the first session of the Council as well as the death of John XXIII. There is a contentious beginning of a discussion on the schema of the Church with only one week remaining in the session. Fathers Ratzinger and Kung express their deep satisfaction and admit that the results of this first session have been “astonishing” and beyond their wildest imaginings. Father Trauner also reflects on John XXIII’s own self-canonizing attitude.

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.
