May the Peace and Joy of Jesus settle deeply in your souls!
There are a number of new additions to the Vatican II page which we encourage all interested to peruse. A brief excerpt from one of the additons follows:
The Bible reveals the Mystery that the Church is a Living Body (attached to Christ its Head – Ephesians 5:22-32, 4:15-16). ALL LIVING BODIES GROW AND MATURE WITH TIME AND EXPERIENCE. The Body of Christ the Church has been growing and maturing throughout its history, moving forwards through time and gaining experience as much through its mistakes as through its successes, like any living body. Vatican II was a great milestone in the Body of Christ’s process of maturation, of “growing up” ever closer to the fullness of the Love of Christ its Head, but its teaching has to be known and understood deeply in both the minds and the hearts of today’s divided Christians in order for us (as one Body) to display to the world a greater MATURITY OF LOVE IN CHRIST, a Family Love which will draw ever more of the people Jesus died to save into our Christian Family, adopted by God the Father through Jesus, God the Son, by whom we received the indwelling of God the Holy Spirit, the “Spirit of Adoption” (Romans 8:15) who makes us one Family in Christ.
