Maya and Catholic Cultures in Crisis

John D. Early

University Press of Florida

This chapter describes Maya complaints about the shortcomings of the Tridentine catechesis to meet their crisis of physical survival. These inadequacies were not restricted to the Maya but were systemic throughout a Catholicism in crisis. To meet the crisis and revitalize Catholicism, Pope John XXIII assembled Vatican Council II. Brief sketches are given of some new Catholic orientations as a result of the council that were significant for its efforts among the Maya. The most important were an emphasis on social justice and the role of the laity (lay apostolate) in the work of the Church. The chapter also attempts to clarify some of the terminology associated with the council and later discussions of it.

Keywords:   Catholic crisis, Pope John XXIII, Vatican Council II, social justice, lay apostolate
