I was not born a catholic, but converted when i was 19, and i am still learning. I converted into the faith through the SSPX, where my best friend is a priest and where my in-laws are attempting to receive the sacraments through.
My perspective of Vatican II, from my birth into the church, has been that opinion of the SSPX. However, Tim Staples and Jimmy Akin have done a fine job of defending the council. One statement that i have heard several times on Catholic Answers Live is that Vatican II was an Ecumenical Council. I have been told that it was Pastoral Council.
What is the difference between the two councils? What kind of a council was Vatican II?
And why does Vatican II fall under the one it does?
