The latest special issue of America marking the anniversary of the Council has a number of important articles, including a review by John O’Malley, S.J. on Yves Congar’s My Journal of the Council; a reflection by Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradriaga, archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras; and an editorial, Aggiornamento 2012, where the editors note:
The legacy of Vatican II remains in dispute. The reforms of the council, not to mention the call to continual reform, cannot be taken for granted. Many forces opposed to the council’s vision are busy rolling back its work. In all humility, however, we must admit space for the demands of our own age, for corrections of deviations made in what was alleged to be the spirit of the council and for new promptings of the Spirit. The successful appropriation of the Second Vatican Council requires that the people of God continue their pilgrim journey, aware that we move in contested terrain.
