Putting down the dog

Since Vatican II, in the Dominicans there has been a movement informed by the thinking of Hans Kung and articulated in the 1970s by Edward Schillebeeckx. This movement has sought to remake the Order into a new image; one different from the past and more "relevant" to the present; a present which is now a part of the irrelevant past. This was an undercurrent of the different pulls experienced in the Third Order/Dominican Laity today.

this picture was just too good not to use in this context.

Vatican II called for religious institutes to return to the original charism of the founder, not destroying what was left of it.
