Manuscript I. The New and The Old: Implementing Vatican II Anew
In the first work - The New and The Old - events that occurred and issues that arose before, during, and after the Second Vatican Council are explored, and I explain and demonstrate how the Council’s implementation was largely "hijacked" by a loose coalition of churchmen and ecclesial leaders influenced by Modernism. As a result, the Council’s directives and teachings were never fully and truly actualized. Thus, the Church must now revisit the documents and implement them according to the minds of the Council Fathers. In heavily citing the documents themselves, various “Modernist” as well as “Traditionalist” misinterpretations are corrected, while key areas of renewal and reform outlined by the Council are highlighted and targeted for an overdue implementation.
