Vatican CouncilEdit

What’s missing from this entry is his role the Council which, in addition to what is said in this excerpt from the CEF biography, brought him to the attention of Paul VI. Here’s the excerpt:[1]

Secrétaire général adjoint de l’Épiscopat français en charge des questions pastorales en 1962, c’est à ce titre qu’il participa au concile Vatican II (1962-1965). Expert lors du Concile, le futur cardinal Etchegaray fut le témoin privilégié de la vie quotidienne des évêques et des travaux de l’assemblée. Il assista le chanoine Ferdinand Boulard qui créa un groupe de travail intitulé « Évêque de Vatican II ». Ce groupe avait pour but de réfléchir et d’échanger sur la vie pastorale et spirituelle des évêques. Le Père Etchegaray fut également secrétaire de la « Conférence des délégués » aussi appelée « Conférence des 22 ». Ce groupe informel, réunissant des évêques de divers pays, se constitua dans le but de faciliter l’échange d’informations entre épiscopats. Durant le Concile, il devint également le secrétaire du comité de liaison qui donnera naissance quelques années plus tard, en 1970 au Conseil des conférences épiscopales européennes (CCEE).

Catholic–Orthodox relationsEdit

The cross of Saint Andrew the apostle was presented to the Bishop of Patras Nicodemus by a Catholic delegation led by Etchegaray.[citation needed] All the relics, which consist of the small finger, the skull (part of the top of the cranium of Saint Andrew), and the cross on which he was martyred, have been kept in the Church of St. Andrew at Patras in a special shrine and are revered in a special ceremony every 30 November, his feast day.[citation needed]

adviceEdit

Material should not go in the summary unless it is already in the body of the entry. (example: 160 religious leaders) And if it is in the body, there’s no need to have a ref tag in the summary. We also don’t say “he was notable”. State the notable facts. Bmclaughlin9 (talk)
