Good Catholics or dissenters?

Conference titled Vatican II: For the Next Generation, will examine signs of today's times

Catherine Clifford
A conference in Ottawa Sept. 27-29 marking the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council will examine how to "hand on the Gospel today" in light of Vatican II's teachings, said Catherine Clifford, a Saint Paul University theology professor and an organizer of the conference. The conference will be titled "Vatican II: For the Next Generation."

The conference line-up has drawn some controversy, however. The blog has launched an online petition that blogger John Pacheco hopes will reach 200 names before he sends it at the end of June to Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Pedro Lopez Quintana.

The letter urges the nuncio to advise Cardinal Peter Turkson, the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, who is to give a keynote address, to avoid the "scandal" of appearing at a conference of "dissenters."

  1. Well Catholics have to weigh in. If they can't hurd cats then they find a culture of sheep I guess it is not here. GOOD CATHOLICS who in the opinion of some are DISSENTERS, then so be it STAND YOUR GROUND. Catherina of Sienna did, yours truly, Gloria Enoch, OFS and Pax et Bonum
