VATICAN CITY, OCT. 10, 2012 (Zenit.org).- The Vatican publication, "L'Osservatore Romano" will publish a special booklet to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council.

The booklet will narrate the events of the Council based on accounts and previously unpublished material along with photos of the Popes who were present at the Council, including Pope Benedict XVI, who participated as a young theologian.

Last year, the Holy Father wrote an introduction to an edition of his own conciliar writings, which were published in Germany. The Pope's writings will be available in the booklet in the Italian, English, and Spanish editions. L'Osservatore Romano will also publish the Pope Benedict XVI's introduction in the original German text as well as in Italian on its website.
