Hans Kung and Vatican II

In an open letter to the Bishops in April 2010, the Swiss theologian Hans Küng charged that the pontificate of Pope Benedict II failed "to make the spirit of the Second Vatican Council the compass for the whole Catholic Church, including the Vatican itself, and thus to promote the needed reforms in the church."

In a recent post to the Irish Times, Rev Michael Smith, Bishop of Meath, finds [Küng's] claim to be the true interpreter of the documents of the Vatican Council that I find most difficult to accept, given the reality of his involvement with it.

Or lack thereof.
