I've been perusing some of Ratzinger's articles and addresses (that ol' RFC website sure comes in handy sometimes, doesn't it?), as well as the book Called to Communion (Ignatius Press 1996). However, lacking a background in Catholic theology, I would certainly appreciate some supplementary recommendations of good articles and books on the topic (clarifying Ratzinger & Vatican II, I mean -- after reading The Remnant I've got a pretty good grasp of the traditionalist perspective on such).
Given the potential for an extended discussion I've moved my introductory post to the forum, rather than this blog. Feel free to join in.
