Fun with Word Clouds

This is fun. Pray Tell assistant Alex Blechle made two word clouds: one of the Council of Trent’s decrees on sacraments in general and individually, and one on the Second Vatican Council’s liturgy constitution and teachings on liturgy and sacraments in Lumen gentium, Sacrosanctum Concilium, Presbyterorum ordinis, Optatam totius, and Perfectae caritatis. The texts came from the Vatican’s website. Here are the results. You are invited to run your hermeneutics of continuity and rupture on these images, as you wish.




    1. As a presbyter from the spat represented by Trent, it is no wonder we Lutherans have a hard time hearing Vatican II….which is mostly our own fault. Thanks!
