Front row seats for Vatican II

May 15, 2012
Catholic News Service recently interviewed 97 year old Archbishop Loris Capovilla. Archbishop Capovilla was prelate of the sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto, Italy for many years. Before that however, he was the personal secretary to Pope John XXIII. He had a privileged vantage point for Vatican II, he saw the circumstances that lead John XXIII to call the council and was at the pope's side through the council. He was also at the pope's side when he opened the third secret of Fatima. In this video Archbishop Capovilla reflects on the Second Vatican Council.
