Vatican II was necessary and the best thing that ever happened. Unfortunately, it was not properly implemented. I read through some of the documents and they are well written. Most Catholics have never read the documents, so there is a lot of misunderstanding.

Vatican II did NOT abolish the Latin Mass, nor did it abolish Gregorian Chant. The Latin Mass could still be said and Chant still sung in the churches. It took a Motu Proprio by Pope Benedict to clarify this. For those who want to go to the old Latin Mass, check your local diocese. Many cities in the U.S. and a few in Canada now offer the Extraordinary (i.e., Tridentine) Mass. Gregorian Chant is still around, and sacred music is making a slow comeback.

Vatican II itself was not the problem. The implementation was. I recommend reading the original documents.

Vatican 2 was the opening of modernity and secular acceptance of our faith. unfortunately too many social, economic, and leadership pressures have impacted the Holy Church in a negative way. Prayfully a rebirth will take place in the coming generation.
