The Spirit of Vatican II

All sorts of horrors have been committed in the name of “The Spirit of Vatican II”, so I thought I might have a look through the Council documents and see what Vatican II really said. Here’s a quote from Dei Verbum as a starter:

“It is clear, therefore, that sacred tradition, Sacred Scripture and the teaching authority of the Church, in accord with God’s most wise design, are so linked and joined together that one cannot stand without the others, and that all together and each in its own way under the action of the one Holy Spirit contribute effectively to the salvation of souls.”
Dei Verbum, II, 9
