Bishops finishing agenda plan

FINAL phase of the preparations for the Second Vatican Council opens on June 12 with the seventh and final session of the Central Preparatory Commission. By the end of its eightday meeting next month, the Commission should have completed its review of all proposals for the Council agenda.

The final session will deal with proposals drawn up by the Preparatory Commission for the Lay Apostolate and the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity. During the five days prior to the June meeting. the Central Commission's subcommittee for amendments will prepare final drafts of proposals by the Theological and Liturgical Commissions, and by the Secretariat for Communications Media.

So far the Central Commission has examined a total of 59 proposals. These are contained in 102 booklets with a total of 1.400 pages. They represent a sifting of the replies from Bishops and experts gathered during the first phases of the preparatory work.

These booklets, together with those to be compiled after the last session of the Central Commission, will he sent to the Bishops of the world, who will have a few months to study the matters proposed for the Council agenda, and will then enter the Council ready to discuss them.
