Is the pontificate of Pope Francis the next stage of the Second Vatican Council reception or is the beginning of a new post-conciliar Church situation? Is the way we perceive and understand the Church changing fundamentally now 50 years after the Council? Does the Church's discourse contain things the Council could not even have imagined? These questions lead us to formulating two basic hypotheses which will be developed in detail. First, each phase of the reception and subsequent reflection on the reception of the Council ties together the pluriformity of ecclesiological models and pastoral propedeutics manifested in basic pastoral decisions as responses by faith to the changing world around us. Secondly, finding a new unity in the situation of pluriformity of ecclesiological models, as brought by the phases of reflection on the reception of the Council, will be possible provided that the basic pastoral propedeutics described in the text will be transformed by pastorality as the basic driving force of the initiation by the Council. Pastorality is the interpretative key of the Council brought to the Church by Francis's pontificate.
