The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about a recent gathering of scholars discussing the Second Vatican Council at St. Paul University in Ottawa:
The teachings of the Second Vatican Council remain an essential basis for the new evangelization and ongoing Church renewal, said scholars at the "Vatican II: For the Next Generation" conference.
Boston College theologian Richard Gaillardetz, speaking at the conference at Saint Paul University Sept. 27-29, compared the council to an "unfinished building site."
In summing up the contributions of several theologians during the conference before 300 participants, Gaillardetz recalled St. Peter's Basilica in Rome "was built in the 16th century while the old building was still standing." The work of the council fathers remains unfinished.
