St. Catherine Lecture: Assessing the Legacy 50 Years after Vatican II
by Kari Hamende
Paul Philibert, O.P.
Dominican theologian Yves Congar wrote True and False Reform in the Church more than a decade before Vatican II. His book influenced Pope John XXIII’s idea for a council in important ways, and today it remains a valuable resource for interpreting the council’s legacy. 

Congar’s criteria for authentic reform show how much has been achieved and also how much remains to be done. His ideas are as relevant today as they were before Vatican II. 

Rev. Paul Philibert, OP, translated Congar’s True and False Reform into English. He has taught pastoral theology at Catholic University, Aquinas Institute, and the University of Fribourg (among other schools). He is the author of The Priesthood of the Faithful: Key to a Living Church and other books. Currently, he is Promoter of Permanent Formation for the Southern Dominican Province.

Admission is free.
