ACPI and the new translation of the Roman Missal

The ACPI has created a bit of a story the last few days.

Many of the founders of  ACPI have been telling us for years that change is good, people should not be set in their ways, don't be afraid of change, embrace it. Now Rev. Frs. it is time to take your own advice.
