Vatican II Constitutions | Episode 7

We have two interesting years ahead of us in the life of the Catholic Church. 2025 is a Jubilee Year where the theme is ‘Pilgrims of Hope’. In the lead-up, not only do we have a two-part Synod of Bishops meeting in Rome in 2023 and 2024, we also prepare for the Jubilee with two years of focus and formation.

On today’s ‘At the Foot of the Cross’, we’re lifting the lid on the four constitutions of the Second Vatican Council. Sacrosanctum Concilium on the Sacred Liturgy, Lumen Gentium on the Church, Dei Verbum on Divine Revelation, and Gaudium et Spes on the Church in the Modern World. This is very much a short overview, given by our General Secretary, Canon Christopher Thomas, to encourage further reading and engagement.

Also on the podcast, we speak to the CEO of Caritas Salford, Patrick O’Dowd, about the cost of living crisis and the impact on people in the north west.

We finish by hearing from one of our bishops. Bishop Patrick McKinney is our Lead Bishop for Interreligious Dialogue and gives us a reflection on the importance of dialogue with followers of other religions.
