Vatican Council, which falls this Thursday 11th of October, Veronica Scarisbrick
is set to bring you some of the personal testimonies of some of those who were there.
Starting with a young Patrick Kelly,now Archbishop of Liverpool who was present
in Saint Peter’s Basilica witnessing on many an occasion the discussions of the Council
Fathers. He shares with Veronica Scarisbrick his memories of that epoch and in
a special way of that document on Revelation, gone down in history with the Latin
title of ‘Dei Verbum’. It was the 18th of November 1965 and in Saint Peter's Basilica
the Second Vatican Council was drawing to a close when during its penultimate session
Pope Paul VI promulgated the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation. Listen
to Vatican Radio archive sound of Pope Paul VI speaking in Latin on that occasion,
as well as Archbishop Kelly's personal strong memories of that event.
