Pope Francis and Vatican II (2020 Napa Institute Keynote)

Bishop Barron has done it again. See video here.

He has excellently defended Vatican II and showed forth Vatican II purpose and great fruit. He also shows how it relates to Pope Francis.

Some brief notes and thoughts from the video and my own musings.

If the Church is Noah’s Ark, then Vatican II was like opening the doors so the light could shine forth. That is what Pope Francis is trying to do again for us and the Church.

He also encourages us to re-read Pope Francis Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel.) Pope Francis’ thought is in this document. If we want to get up and support the Pope, this is a great way to do it! Learn or re-learn his call for joy in spreading the gospel.

So, often we can get bogged down in negativity, that is not what Vatican II, the missionary council, is about. We should be joyful as we give ourselves to spread the gospel. That is what I think promoting and providing for Pope Francis’ mission and the Vatican II message in our lives and in the lives of our families will do – Joy!
