Vatican II Urban Legends

Vatican II called for Mass to look like this, right? (NOT!)

Vatican II called for Mass to look like this, right? (NOT!)

The thought has occurred to me to do an adult education class (maybe, at some point) on “Vatican II Urban Legends”. It would involve looking at various ideas and errors that have been proposed as originating from the Council but are, in fact, nowhere to be found in its documents. Things such as:

– Altars must be detached from the wall and Mass must be said facing the people

– Altar rails must be removed

– Guitars and drums are OK; Latin chant is not to be used

– All religions are good and it is not necessary to be Catholic

Help me out! What are some other “Vatican II Urban Legends” that come to mind? Perhaps, if I ever succeed in organizing this class, I can do a series here on the blog also. Thanks!
