Crisis Series #17 with Fr. Loop: The Excellent Preparations for Vatican II

We’re happy to welcome back Fr. Jonathan Loop, the Principal of Immaculate Conception Academy in Post Falls, ID, to discuss the preparations that were carried out for the Second Vatican Council. We’ll take a quick look at the First Vatican Council, and what effect that had on this second council, as well as why Pope John XXIII wanted to convoke this council. Then we’ll take a look at the preparations themselves. As you’ll see, they were extensive, and beyond some troubling details, they were in fact, very traditional, and caused Archbishop Lefebvre to be optimistic about the good the council could achieve!
