I'm happy to hear of all the good work you do for priests, both those who have offended, as well as those who have not. You show great balance! God bless your work!
Most Reverend Michael J. Sheehan, Archbishop Emeritus of Santa Fe
I have read about your works very carefully and certainly express gratitude to you for all that you do. I simply write today to express my thanks to you for what you have done for so many. I ask God to bless you and all your families in abundance.
Most Reverend Harry J. Flynn, Archbishop Emeritus of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
Thank you especially for being there when so many of our brother priests find themselves vulnerable and in crisis. My God bless you a hundred-fold for your kindness of spirit, and your Christly love for our priests.
Most Reverend Wilton D. Gregory, Archbishop of Atlanta
Opus Bono Sacerdotii is a wonderful movement. On behalf of Catholic priests, I am grateful for the attention you have shown to the clergy and certainly support you in this outreach to priests who find themselves in difficulty. I am quite confident that God will reward your generosity.
Most Reverend John C. Nienstedt, Archbishop Emeritus of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
Many fine priests have been vilified by false accusations and unfair trial in the press. We must remember however, that some bishops and priests have caused this crisis and we must all commit ourselves to renewed faithfulness to our vows, our Church and the teaching of Jesus Christ. That said, I can't thank you enough for the sacrificial way in which you have chosen to live out your faith. Our priests and bishops need people like you. You have truly been sent by the Spirit to our priests in need.
Most Reverend Robert C. Molino, Bishop of Madison
I truly appreciate the assistance and support that you are providing to my brother priests. More than ever, we need to support our good priests, and to pray for them. Hopefully more people will imitate your good example.
Most Reverend Michael D. Pfeifer, OMI, Bishop Emeritus of San Angelo
It is both edifying and consoling to know of the prayerful support that you offer to so many good and faithful priests. Be assured that I will remember your apostolate at Mass.
Most Reverend Michael J. Sheridan, Bishop of Colorado Springs
I have read with interest about the organization you founded entitled Opus Bono Sacerdotii. In addition, my staff has reviewed the materials on your website. Allow me to congratulate you on your work and ministry to priests. Your organization is exactly what is needed at this point in time and I commend you. May the Lord continue to bless your ministry and sacrifices.
Most Reverend Basil H. Losten, Bishop Emeritus of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Stamford
You are a long awaited gift to the Church! God bless you in all you do for priests who are in need ofthe healing and peace of Christ. Like John the Baptist, you are bold proclaimers of the Kingdom of Christ. As was true of John the Baptist, you will probably have to wait for your reward until Heaven, which surely awaits you for all the good you are doing.
Most Reverend Robert J. Baker, Bishop of Birmingham
Our Secretary for Clergy Personnel informed me of the agreement of your organization to help a retired priest of the Diocese of Brooklyn. Permit me to acknowledge my gratitude for this wonderful show of compassion in helping Father, and for all the help that you give to priests. Please share my gratitude with the other members of your staff.
Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn
Thank you for all that you are doing for our priests and loving them when they need to be loved most. I pray for my brothers every day that they may know the love of God in Christ Jesus, and my love and concern for them. Please keep asking us to help you financially and by our prayers. I believe that our priests deserve that from us in their greatest need.
Most Reverend Martin D. Holley, Bishop of Memphis, TN
Your work with formerly active Priests is admirable and most needed. A personal mistake or false accusation or mental illness has caused their removal from active ministry and loss of means of financial support. They deserve a chance to right their condition and live a decent productive life in their remaining years on this earth. Opus Bono often is the only means these men have to live their remaining years in peace and minimal comfort. Your work is one of the most deserving charitable efforts we have in this country. I am pleased to lend my recommendation to your efforts.
Most Reverend James H. Garland, Bishop Emeritus of Marquette, MI
