The Church continues to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. The following are the links to the October 12, 2012, edition of Vatican Information Service which reports on two related discourses by the Holy Father. In addition, Salt + Light Television has produced an 8-minute documentary on Blessed John XXIII who decided to hold the Council and later presided at its opening. 

Discourses of the Holy Father:
“AGGIORNAMENTO” DOES NOT BREAK WITH TRADITION BUT EXTENDS ITS VITALITY 
BENEDICT XVI REPEATS THE “UNFORGETTABLE WORDS” OF BLESSED JOHN XXIII
