Küng "less qualified than most" to comment on Vatican II
A remarkable article in the Irish Times ("Küng invokes spirit of Second Vatican Council he hardly saw") from one who was there, Bishop Michael Smith (Bishop of Meath). According to the paper, Bishop Meath attended all 168 days of the Second Vatican Council for which he and 11 other young priests prepared the official record. In contrast, by Bishop Smith's account, it seems that Dr Küng actually appears to have declined involvement in the event about which he so freely lectures everyone else. There are all sorts of narratives about the Second Vatican Council, but it is always interesting to hear the story from "someone who was there".
