The first article, by Monsignor Fernando Ocáriz Braña, Vicar General of Holy Cross and Opus Dei (one of the Vatican representatives in the doctrinal talks with the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X), was published in the December 2, 2011 issue of the official daily of the Holy See, L'Osservatore Romano, and is entitled "On adhesion to the Second Vatican Council."
The second article, by Fr. Jean-Michel Gleize, professor of theology in the International Seminary of Saint Pius X in Écône, Switzerland (also a participant in the doctrinal discussions between the Holy See and the Society of Saint Pius X), is a response to the former article published in Le Courrier de Rome (no. 350, décembre 2011), made available by DICI in English shortly before Christmas, 2011 (the full text, in Italian: "Una questione cruciale: il valore magisteriale del Concilio Vaticano II").
Those interested in the wider debate can garner a taste of the controversy by consulting the lively comments to the following two posts:
- Msgr. Ocáriz, "On adhesion to the Second Vatican Council" (Rorate Caeli, December 1, 2011)
- Fr. Jean-Michel Gleize, "A Crucial Question" (Rorate Caeli, December 30, 2011) [N.B. Update: complete text and translation of Fr. Gleize's response (PDF)]
