EWTN Catholic Q&A
Vatican 2
Question from Hugh B on 10-21-2012:

Did Vatican 2 increase of decrease our understanding of the Catholic Faith in our lives?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 11-07-2012:

Dear Hugh,

It should have increased our understanding of the faith. But there were so many misinterpretations of its spirit that it confused many. Ever since then the last three Popes have been intent on giving the right interpretation. Those who have faith in the teaching authority of the Pope will benefit in time. That is what is happening more and more today.

Dr. Geraghty
