Catholic Teaching BrothersResponding to the Second Vatican Council

Catholic Teaching Brothers: Responding to the Second Vatican Council [This quotation captures well the great change that took place within the Catholic Church in the early 1960s. By the late 1950s, it seemed as if nothing short of a great shock would be required to shift it out of its authoritarian, hierarchical, and dogmatic approach in its dealings with both the laity and those in religious life. The shock came, however, when Pope John XXIII announced the convening of the Second Vatican Council (Vatican 2), which, between 1962 and 1965, brought together 2,500 bishops from around the world to deliberate. The result “was nothing short of revolutionary, profoundly affecting virtually every aspect of Catholic life.” 2 This chapter commences with an overview on how the changes brought about by this momentous initiative in the history of the church, while radical, were preceded by developments over the previous 70 years, which indicated that the church was on a path of starting to open up to the modern world. It goes on to outline a set of educationally relevant principles that emerged from the council. This is followed by a consideration of specific education declarations.

Abstract

[This quotation captures well the great change that took place within the Catholic Church in the early 1960s. By the late 1950s, it seemed as if nothing short of a great shock would be required to shift it out of its authoritarian, hierarchical, and dogmatic approach in its dealings with both the laity and those in religious life. The shock came, however, when Pope John XXIII announced the convening of the Second Vatican Council (Vatican 2), which, between 1962 and 1965, brought together 2,500 bishops from around the world to deliberate. The result “was nothing short of revolutionary, profoundly affecting virtually every aspect of Catholic life.” 2 This chapter commences with an overview on how the changes brought about by this momentous initiative in the history of the church, while radical, were preceded by developments over the previous 70 years, which indicated that the church was on a path of starting to open up to the modern world. It goes on to outline a set of educationally relevant principles that emerged from the council. This is followed by a consideration of specific education declarations. Finally, attention is given to how the religious, including teaching brothers, were redefined by the council, and the implications this had for education.]
