Today, Rome makes the claim that Vatican II introduced no reversal of doctrine and no discontinuity with the past. In fact, in 2007 we were told by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), quoting Paul VI on the changes of the council: "What Christ willed, we also will. What was, still is. What the Church has taught down through the centuries, we also teach."
The scope of this study examines the accuracy and truthfulness of this statement given by Paul VI and the CDF based on numerous teachings and practices of the Catholic Church prior to the council. This study focuses on the Divine law particularly and will be divided into two parts beginning with forgotten principles spelled out in writing taken by Bishop George Hay. Also provided are numerous traditional teachings of the Church then contrasting them with the Vatican II popes.
