Richard Gaillardetz looks at the successes and failures of Vatican II and asks, do we need a Vatican III?
In an archive interview from the 2010 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, Richard Gaillardetz examines the successes and the still yet unrealized goals of the Second Vatican Council. Should Catholics today focus anew on implementing the Council's vision, or instead turn outward to evangelize the culture?
