Pray for fifteen days with the Second Vatican Council

Prier 15 jours avec le concile Vatican II (Nouvelle Cité) de André Dupleix - Evene

Is it possible to pray with the Second Vatican Council, from the constitutions, decrees and declarations which constitute its basis? Certainly. By that which unites all the councils in the long history of the Church : the permanent breath of the Spirit of God . But also because the conciliar fathers have never dissociated their debates, as basic as they are, from prayer and liturgy. We will therefore be directed, taking into account all the conciliar documents, without omitting the messages to the world, how better to perceive this Council , expression of the faith of the people of God , which can now strengthen and nourish our spiritual lives spiritual and our responsibility as baptized. And all that, in connection and continuity with the strongest tradition of Christianity and the Church .

Cathcon- not a book that I will be purchasing any time soon.  We do not hear much of the Spirit of Vatican II these days-  not least because it is contrary to the one Spirit that ruled at all the other councils.  Needless to say  Msgr Dupleix graduated from seminary in.....1968.  See my earlier comments about Cardinal Ouellet eulogy of the Council and all its fruits.
