VATICAN II, 60 YEARS LATER: Can You Handle the Truth? (includes never-before-seen vintage video)

New from Remnant TV...

Something different tonight — Michael Matt shares clips from a vintage documentary on the Second Vatican Council, and asks a few easy questions:


Do you believe the Catholic Church is better off today than it was in 1965? 

Do you believe the Gospel is being proclaimed to the world more efficiently? 

Is the priesthood better off?

How about your extended family? Are they all still practicing?

No? So why are we still insisting that Vatican II was such a smashing success? What explains the almost cult-like adoration of a 60-year-old event that by all leading indicators left the Church in shambles? 

This video includes vintage clips of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Walter Matt, and Michael Matt from the early 1970s. “The fight against Vatican II began right away, back when I was a kid,” Michael recalls, “and I guess I’d like to ask the Pollyannas out there to stop the ‘glad game’ and get real about what really happened at Vatican II!”
