Quote of the Day (Cardinal Suenens, on Vatican II and Renewal)

“Vatican II was the heir of those great movements of renewal which were and are stirring in the heart of the modern Church; the biblical, liturgical, patristic, theological and pastoral renewals. The Council caught and channeled these currents, and, under the influence of the Spirit, made of them mighty rivers whose strong currents caused the waters to penetrate deeply into the heart of the sea.”-- Leo Jozef Cardinal Suenens (1904-96), “Our Church” (1970)
