New history of Vatican II

VATICAN (SE): L’Osservatore Romano is promoting Storia del Concilio Ecumenico Vaticano II, a new history of the Second Vatican Council written by Piero Doria, an historian who works for the Vatican Secret Archives.

The newspaper praised the book, as well as its preface, written by Archbishop Marcello Semeraro, from Albano.

Archbishop Semeraro is the secretary of the Council of Cardinal Advisers. He calls the council an event and prophecy.

Citing Father Karl Rahner, he says the council helped foster the “passage to a new paradigm of a Church of world dimension.”
