What we have in this book is Archbishop Denis Hurleys Second Vatican Council memoir and a few essays about what has happened since. Its publication 40 after the Council is timely and challenging.
The Archbishop makes the Council come alive for the reader. We can experience with him the daily struggles, the ups and downs, the hopes and disappointments, and the excitement of being part of an event of such historic importance.
The challenge of this book, addressed to all of us, is to take up the torch of the Second Vatican Council and to continue the work of aggiornamento, reform and spiritual renewal.
