Among other things, the Holy Father said this about the aftermath of the Council in the late Sixties:
"One side was of the opinion that this cultural revolution was what the Council had wanted. It identified this new Marxist cultural revolution with the will of the Council. It said: This is the Council; in the letter the texts are still a bit antiquated, but behind the written words is this 'spirit,' this is the will of the Council, this is what we must do. "
The Supreme Pontiff is acknowledging that a phony "spirit of Vatican II" has existed and that
it has caused much trouble for the Faith.
So it is legitimate for the rest of us to echo the Pope in exposing and criticizing that phony "spirit of Vatican II."
