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)
