U.S. priests ask for prayers as cardinals meet


Members of the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests are asking for prayers during the process of selecting a new pope. In a statement released March 4, the AUSCP called for prayers and committed its membership “to work and pray with all members of the faithful for the renewal of our Church which is at the same time, both beautiful and flawed.”

The statement on behalf of the 900-plus members was issued by Father David Cooper, a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee who serves as chairman of the AUSCP board.
