From this morning’s Mass with the pope in the guesthouse chapel:

The Pope said one example of this resistance [to the Holy Spirit] was the Second Vatican council which he called “a beautiful work of the Holy Spirit.” But 50 years later, “have we done everything the Holy Spirit was asking us to do during the Council,” he asked. The answer is “No,” said Pope Francis. “We celebrate this anniversary, we put up a monument but we don’t want it to upset us. We don’t want to change and what’s more there are those who wish to turn the clock back.”

Some wish to turn back the clock on Vatican II? Who do you suppose  the pope means? Discuss.
