‘In aula fit plausus’: At Pray Tell today

The Pray Tell blog has posted a guest post of mine that briefly explores a remarkable moment during the proceedings of the Second Vatican Council, on October 30, 1962. On that day, the most powerful cardinal of the Catholic Church was unmistakably slapped down by the bishops of the world during an intervention he offered before them all gathered in St. Peter’s Basilica. And he knew it, refusing to show his face again on the Council floor for over two weeks after that!
