Excellent Article and one that should be read by some of those who do not really know what the Council was all about, but rather criticize it as though it was somehow "illegitimate".

I remember being in the seminary ans studying Rahner, Schillebeeckx and others. This article takes me back.

Thanks Fr. Barron!

After sixty years as an active protestant doing lay ministry in several denominations as I worked toward a theology degree, I became Catholic, gratefully. I remember reading a book a few years ago, a compendium of sorts of Rahner's writings. I was very impressed, but red lights began to flash at certain passages in which he seemed not only to be realizing his responsibility to challenge the status quo in the Church, but also putting forth in what I immediately recognized as a kind of disordered spirit, with some arrogance and even defiance underlying it, his sense that his individual conscience always reigned supreme. Truly, this was enlightening to me because I had left that kind of spirit behind, I had thought, when I left protestantism. Fr. Barron, you clarified this for people in the pews who read your internet writings, and I thank you. Knowing now that there was a clear division between Ratzinger's "group" and Rahner's after the Council, helps me understand even better what I sensed with some alarm in Rahner's writings.

I am currently working toward a Masters in Theology where I am being introduced to the writings of the men mentioned in your article. Amazing, gifted and sensitive to the Holy Spirit, they are a force for good in Holy Mother Church. I'm reading Henri de Lubac's 'Catholicism - Christ and the Common Destiny of Man' and feeling challenged to live out my faith in a much deeper way than I ever have. Thank you Fr. Barron for such a wonderful article!
