Vatican II still a compass for the Church

The B.C. Catholic has an article that reminds Catholic's not ignore the 50 year old Vatican II teaching:

The 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council is an opportunity to revisit the clear teaching of its documents and reject distortions and false interpretations that have gained traction in the Catholic Church, according to a council scholar.
Alan Schreck, professor of theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, spoke at the Graymoor Spiritual Life Center in Garrison March 13 on "Vatican II: World Church or Church of the Little Flock?"

Vatican II is still a sure compass for the Church today, Schreck said, and each Pope since the council reaffirmed its teachings as "God's teachings in our time." Nonetheless, he said, there has been tumult as the postconciliar Church sought to understand what the council meant and how to implement it.
