Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church Support Austrian Priests' Call for Reform

"The Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church (ARCC) stands in solidaritywith the right of the priests of Austria to strongly voice what they believe are theneeds of the people of the church regarding married clergy, women priests,
Eucharistic hospitality, and other reforms."


"These priests are prepared to face the consequences of the decisions they have
made in conscience. The needs they express are echoed around the world. Rather
than strict penalties being imposed, a response of open discussion and loving actionis called for.
We encourage all faithful Catholics to think deeply on these matters, and to call theirpastors and bishops to a responsive action which goes to the heart of true need."

What if the fruit of this hoped-for discussion is no change at all? Would you accept this decision with humility?

The fact of the matter is that your movement does not want "discussion." Instead, you want your will imposed on the Church. That's not how things work and that's not the Church which Christ created.
