Praying the Mass: Complimentary copies for Bishops

I'm trying to come up with a list of Bishops to send complimentary copies of my book upon its completion, in an effort to promote the book itself and the general need for catechesis on the new liturgical translation.

Here's my list so far. Who might you suggest?
  • Bishop Paul Bootkoski, Metuchen, NJ (my bishop)
  • Bishop Arthur Serratelli, Paterson, NJ (chairman of the USCCB CDW)
  • Francis Cardinal George, Chicago, IL (president of the USCCB)
  • Archbishop Charles Chaput, Denver, CO
  • Bishop Thomas Wenski, Orlando, FL (recommended by @Proud_Lion)
  • Archbishop Allen Vigneron, Detroit, MI (recommended by Tim of Army of Martyrs)
  • Archbishop Myers, Newark, NJ
I'm looking for Bishops who have identified themselves as supporters of the new translation or who generally have a high opinion of liturgical catechesis and formation.

Update: Fr. Z suggested I send it to all the Bishops on the USCCB CDW:
  • Most Rev. Arthur J. Serratelli (Bishop of Paterson, Chairman)
  • Justin F. Cardinal Rigali (Archbishop of Philadelphia)
  • Most Rev. Daniel M. Buechlein, OSB (Archbishop of Indianapolis)
  • Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap. (Archbishop of Denver)
  • Most Rev. Wilton D. Gregory (Archbishop of Atlanta)
  • Most Rev. George H. Niederauer (Archbishop of San Francisco)
  • Most Rev. Kevin J. Farrell (Bishop of Dallas)
  • Most Rev. Ronald P. Herzog (Bishop of Alexandria in Louisiana)
  • Most Rev. Octavio Cisneros (Auxiliary Bishop of Brooklyn)
I might also send a copy to Rev. Msgr. Anthony F. Sherman, the Executive Director of the USCCB Secretariat of Divine Worship.

Contact Father "Z" at, and send him this request. He is very knowledgeable on which Bishops would be receptive to this.

A good site to check in with several times a week.
