Last night I had the honor and joy of participating in a worship service at Bellarmine University to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the convocation of the Second Vatican Council.

The service included the prayer that Pope John XXIII used to convene the council, subsequently prayed by the bishops at the opening of each session.
