Diogenes on The "Hesburgh Generation"

The ever-elusive Diogenes has an interesting blog entry, written in reaction to an interview done by the Wall Street Journal with Father Theodore Hesburgh, former President of Notre Dame.  If you want to know more about what he means by "Hesburgh is an archetype of his post-war generation of clergy", click HERE.

This sort of puts a lie to the claims advanced by radical traditionalists about just how idyllic the 1950s were for the Church. You won't hear very many priests from the John Paul II generation saying stuff like this. Obviously, one can't over-generalize, but I always find it strange when these critics of Vatican II lionize the generation responsible for the mis-implementation of the Council.
