We're in our first day of final exams here today, and Katie and I have each taken one already this morning. I don't have another until Tuesday, but I have to write a paper on original sin in the meantime. Just last Monday, I and a couple of other students made a joint presentation on the Second Vatican Council, in which we tried to suggest some ways in which it could be interpreted in continuity with Catholic tradition (an important question for me personally, as many of you know). One of my classmates gave some background information on the Council, I focused on the difficult question of 'religious liberty', and then another classmate offered some suggestions on the question of the possibility of salvation outside the Church. A link to my third of the presentation is on the sidebar.
