Amy Welborn Substack

  Trust Walk is a space to collect stories of Catholic life during the years after the end of the Second Vatican Council.

Welcome to Trust Walk. Close your eyes, join hands and let’s get started.

As a child of Vatican II, born in 1960, and as a person interested in history, I’ve been thinking and writing about the Council and its aftermath…forever. In fact, my very first column in a Catholic publication, in the Florida Catholic back in the mid-80’s, was called something like “Musings of a Vatican II Baby.” My theme was: you old dudes who are constantly framing everything in terms of Vatican II This and Vatican II That – get over it! The younger generation of Catholics has moved beyond all that and lives in a different paradigm!


Yes, here we are, still stuck. It’s frustrating, tragic and not exactly conducive to an evangelizing spirit.

So why this space and what is it, exactly?
