AUSCP endorses participation of the faithful in the selections of bishops. A good exampe of that being done can be seen at www.novabishop.org. The faithful or the Diocese of Arlington anticipate a new bishop and are using this instrument to express their hopes. Signing the petition is limited to members of the Diocese, but it can serve as a good model for others.

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, America, Sept. 19, 2013 (Click HERE to read the article)
