I’m beginning to wonder if now or perhaps a year from now is not the right time for Vatican Council III?
Yes, Vatican Council II wasn’t too long ago and the Church is anything but stable in this day and age, but I have a growing confidence in our new pope.
I think Pope Benedict XVI might actually be the conduit for the Holy Spirit to guide the Church through another council as a means to drive home true reforms once and for all. I didn’t sense this in our last pope – Pope John Paul II who seemed to drop the ball when it came to implementation and/or discipline.
Why not address the problems and their solutions once and for all within the context of a ecumenical council?
