Letter to the ACP from an American Priest

To the Leadership Team:

Three cheers and then three cheers more!  Whether or not your Association of Irish Catholic Priests makes any headway regarding the New Roman Missal, the courage you show in asking correct but difficult questions at this point in time is an inspiration of a small group of priests in the USA.  Our hope is to follow your example and create an American Association of Catholic Priests.  We feel it is one great way to stand with you and together work for a Catholic Church where all people are welcomed and regarded as equal.  The need for better communication and collaboration between bishops and priests is painfully obvious.  The New Roman Missal is only one of a whole host of questions that need further discussion.  Keep to the high road, stand together, and continue your work!  God bless your efforts with great success.  Fr. David Cooper, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
