THE CHURCH SINCE VATICAN II and Works Related to the Holy Eucharist by BY Michael Davies

THE CHURCH SINCE VATICAN II , BY Michael Davies
FROM SELF-CRITICISM TO SELF-DESTRUCTION:
A QUOTE FROM CARDINAL RATZINGER

The text of this pamphlet was delivered as a lecture in Belfast and Dublin in October 1984. No attempt has been made to adapt the Format to the printed word. Two months later L'Osservatore Romano, the official journal of the Holy See, carried a report of an interview given by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which endorses the conclusion of Mr. Davies concerning the effects of Vatican Il in a very dramatic manner. We quote:

FROM SELF-CRIIICISM TO SELF-DESTRUCTION

"Certainly, the results [of Vatican II] seem cruelly opposed to the expectations of everyone, beginning with those of Pope John XXIII and then of Paul VI: expected was a new Catholic unity and instead we have been exposed to dissension which---to use the words of Paul VI---seems to have gone from self-criticism to self-destruction. Expected was a new enthusiasm, and many wound up discouraged and bored. Expected was a great step forward, and instead we find ourselves faced with a progressive process of decadence which has developed for the most part precisely under the sign of a calling back to the Council, and has therefore contributed to discrediting for many. The net result therefore seems negative. I am repeating here what I said ten years after the conclusion of the work: it is incontrovertible that this period has definitely been unfavorable for th Catholic Church."

Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger,
L'Osservatore Romano (English edition),
24 December 1984
