Since Vatican II was not a valid council this is moreso a hypothetical question but it is one that I would appreciate a solid answer to. Supposing Vatican II had indeed been a valid council, would it have been considered infallible, on a level with Trent and all the other great councils of the Church. Or, would it instead have been a “pastoral council” that would not be particularly binding?
Many Traditional Catholics that I know tell me that it was simply a “pastoral council” and as such we are free to disregard all of the errors found within its documents. If I’m not mistaken this is a popular stance taken by the SSPX (correct me if I’m mistaken).
