What was the most important event in the Catholic Church during the last century? Dr. Christine Bochen discusses the most important event in the Catholic Church during the last century. The Second Vatican Council is the most important event because it caused a shift in the self-understanding of the Catholic Church by enabling the voices of freedom and peace to raise Catholic consciousness. Dr. Bochen concludes by referencing the work of Thomas Merton and its relationship to this shift of self-understanding in the Church.
