In reply to Fr Anthony Boylan's letter of March 9, I would like to add, with respect for his well-intentioned remarks, that the association has not found it easy to co-operate with ICEL.

Our Translation Committee has scholars to equal any which ICEL may have. and their contribution towards a better English translation, given the opportunity, would prove quite significant. However, over a period of four years of trying to co-operate with ICEI. and addressing criticisms to the appropriate translating bodies, the response has been most disheartening for those who believe in making a constructive contribution.

I would therefore ask Fr Boylan to allow his welcome suggestions to take effect as soon as possible.
