                                          AUSCP's CONTEXT
As priests in good standing, faithful to the Gospel of Jesus and Catholic tradition, AUSCP members are inspired especially by the conciliar magisterium of Vatican II as affirmed by Pope Francis:

“Vatican II was a re-reading of the Gospel in light of contemporary culture. ... Vatican II produced a renewal movement that simply comes from the same Gospel. Its fruits are enormous. Just recall the liturgy. The work of liturgical reform has been a service to the people as a re-reading of the Gospel from a concrete historical situation. Yes, there are hermeneutics of continuity and discontinuity, but one thing is clear: the dynamic of reading the Gospel, actualizing its message for today—which was typical of Vatican II—is absolutely irreversible." --Pope Francis, AmericaSept. 19, 2013 (Click HERE to read the article)
