Jeg fikk en e-post i dag tidlig fra en bekjent i Italia, som (lenker til og) skriver:

Må si jeg har sans for B16s back to basics. Ikke noe unødig fokus på en skarve økonomisk krise, men snarere på det essensielle: “Benedetto XVI ha indicato ai vescovi italiani la necessità di «un rinnovato impulso, che punti a ciò che è essenziale della fede e della vita cristiana», spiegando che «non ci sarà rilancio dell’azione missionaria senza il rinnovamento della qualità della nostra fede e della nostra preghiera; non saremo in grado di offrire risposte adeguate senza una nuova accoglienza del dono della grazia; non sapremo conquistare gli uomini al Vangelo se non tornando noi stessi per primi a una profonda esperienza di Dio».”

Jeg leser mer om dette (på engelsk) i dag på Rorate cæli, der vi bl.a. leser om å holde fast på troens innhold og tolke konsilet med en kontinuitetens hermeneutikk:

… “That which above all concerns the Council is that the sacred deposit of the Christian faith be kept and taught in a more efficacious way,” Pope Blessed John XXIII affirmed in his opening address. And it is worthwhile to meditate and read these words.

The Pope charged the Fathers to deepen and present such a perennial doctrine in continuity with the millennial Tradition of the Church: “to pass on the doctrine, pure and whole, without attenuations or distortions,” but in a new way, “according to what is required by our times.” (Address of solemn opening of the Ecumenical Council of the Vatican II, October 11, 1962). With this key for its reading and application – according to a view, certainly not of an unacceptable hermeneutic of discontinuity and of rupture, but of a hermeneutic of continuity and of reform -, listening to the Council and making ours the authoritative indications are the path to ascertaining the ways with which the Church may offer a significant response to the great social and cultural transformations of our time, which have visible consequences also on the religious sphere.
