(RNS) The head of the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests said the middle course charted by the 140 delegates will promote dialogue, not lay down markers for a confrontation with the hierarchy.

  • Gerry graziano

    A good beginning

  • John McGrath

    Obviously they picked fights they thought they might have a chance of eventually winning.

  • Amazing that the priests in the USA lack the courage of their European counterparts.
    I guess Yes-men only hire and appoint/ordain yes-men.

    I find interesting the persistent opposition among so many priests to the new language of the liturgy: it nearly all centers around the language supposedly being above the heads of the congregation. Yet polls show the new language is far, far more popular among the congregation than among clergy. We WANT to be illumined by new concepts. The liturgy is the truest way of imparting the Catholic faith to us!

  • Jesus chose no middle course!
    I guess yes-men only hire/appoint/ordain yes-men.
    So disappointing.
