Re: Tradition, Heresy and the Infallibility of the Universal Ordinary Magisterium
It's probably going to be 2-3 generations before we have an understanding of Vatican II's doctrinal teachings that are both clear and coherent and also consistent with earlier teachings. Probably none of us will live to see/hear/understand it.
My attitude is not to worry about it. The bulk of the potential problem areas of Vatican II aren't things that intimately impact the life of the ordinary layman -- ecclesiology, ecumenism, etc. I'm content to the let the eggheads work out the implementation details.
"Both justice and charity require love for truth, and essentially involve the search for what is true. Without truth, charity slides into sentimentalism. Love becomes an empty shell to be filled arbitrarily. This is the fatal risk of love in a culture without truth."
