Fr. George Kilcourse, Professor of Theology at Bellarmine College in Louisville and the founder of the American Association of Interchurch Families (AAIF) in 1990, commented on Fr. Orsy's presentation. 'He has contributed new insight and perspective to the dilemma faced weekly by authentically interchurch families,' said Fr. Kilcourse. 'Fr. Orsy is a distinguished canonist and theologian who invites all of us in the Catholic Church--interchurch families, bishops, ecumenists, canon lawyers, and pastoral ministers--to recognize how we can responsibly progress toward the full communion to which the Second Vatican Council committed us. This insight opens new doors. We begin to see interchurch families as not merely a problem but also as a gift - as Fr. Orsy so aptly named them, "a grace offered for the healing of the churches."'
