Vatican II: A Universal Call to Holiness by Anthony Ciorra

In April 2012, Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, and Paulist Press co-sponsored a conference celebrating Vatican II's Continuing agenda, focusing on the addresses given at Vatican II's conclusion that challenged the church to spread the council's message. Rather than critique the council documents, the conference explored creative ways in which the energy of the council can be marshaled in establishing the agenda and needs of the twenty-first century. Speakers included:

Anthony Ciorra

Massimo Faggioli

R. Scott Appleby

Diana Hayes

Roberto Goizueta

Michael Himes

Sarah Heiman and Peter Denio

Nancy Dallavalle

John Haught

Michael W. Higgins

The umbrella theme for the conference was the watershed teaching of the council on the "Universal Call to Holiness." Topics include: how the council has been interpreted over the last fifty years; its vision; messages to rulers, women, the poor and suffering, artists, young people, workers, and scientists; and finally, holiness for our world today.
