"You appear to me and many priests of my generation who lived the Spirit filled days of Vatican II," wrote Gillgannon, "as one whose task is to reverse the changes of that great event. You have given the impression that your changes were for the sake of a narrow 'orthodoxy' which seems to imply that the bishops and priests and laity before you were not orthodox."
Ordained in 1958, Gillgannon began his career in campus ministry in 1962 at Western Missouri State University. In 1966, he served on the advisory committee of the U.S. Catholic Bishops' Conference for the post-Vatican II reorganization of Catholic Campus Ministry in the United States. Since 1974, he has worked as a missionary in La Paz, serving as pastor of San Antonio Parish, as episcopal vicar of the Eastern Deanery of La Paz, and as national chaplain for Bolivian Campus Ministry. He is the founder and director of campus ministry for the La Paz, Bolivia Archdiocese and and occasional writer for NCR.

Thank you so much Fr. Gillgannon for your prophetic voice in this - our Babylonian Captivity.
...
Although I thoroughly support Fr Gillgannon's right to question his bishop and challenge him publicly, it is also very clear to me all the damage that he and those like-minded of his generation have cause the church! I am glad that they (Fr G, etc) are heading toward the sunset of this lives so the church can get on with fixing all the problems he and his ilk have caused.

I continue to wish you well, Mike. Keep up the good work and ministry in the name of the Gospel.

THank you Fr. Gillgannon for restoring some of my faith in our church - it is courageous people like you who keep me hopeful that the Catholic church can become something I am proud to belong too.

A complete disappointment, we might only imagine how much better a priest Father Gillgannon might have been. I can only hope that his advanced age has impaired his faculties in making this decision, which is something that NCR ought to disclose if known.

Father Gillgannon has acquired sufficient age and wisdom to understand these things.

Father Gillgannon's letter to
...
Father Gillgannon's letter to his bishop are not only wise and Christ like in their tenor but they all express the sentiments of the MAJORITY OF BAPTIZED CATHOLICS around the globe. I am not surprised that the shills for these right wing thinking bishops like the one in Kansas City, have posted ugly, violent and disrespectful comments in this thread. They are unable to carry on a decent and civil conversation with any person who holds different views, so they attack and devalue others with their un-Christ like words and their dysfunctional behavior. They are losing the battle for the hearts and minds of other Catholics and Christians just as they are losing the most important spirit and teaching of the Second Vatican Council. As the imperial triumphalist Roman Church of the Latin Rite continues to decay at a rapid pace, the right wing fundamentalists Catholics scream louder and louder. Father Gillgannon's words to his bishop are beautiful in their honesty and they certainly reflect the true spirit behind the Second Vatican Council.

Perhaps because Father Gillgannon has entered into senior life and is in the closing years of his career, he obviously feels he has nothing to lose. Still, I applaud his guts but doubt if his actions will inspire younger priests, who still have their entire lives ahead of them, to follow his example. It would be interesting to know what happened to the careers of the Boston Priests who banned together by signing that letter of, "No Confidence" against Cardinal Bernard Law.

Fr. Gillgannon simply describes the extreme polarization within the Catholic church. I suppose it is naive to use the terms 'conservative' and 'liberal', yet they come close to describing his letter to his bishop.

Fr. Michael Gillgannon, Bravo and a BIG thank you.

I can only say Amen to everything Father Gillgannon says.

We would have a much better and credible Catholic Church if more people like Rev. Gillgannon send letters to their bishops expressing their concerns. Bishops are living in another world, far away from us, here on planet earth.

Why is Father Gillgannon not Submitted by Bro Jimbo (not verified) on Sep. 15, 2009.
Why is Father Gillgannon not a bishop or a cardinal archbisop in our church?. A pastor is a uniter, not a divider. He uses dialogue to discover truth, not orders that demand fealty. He is an authoity in the sense of author, creator, innovator. He is not an authoritarian, a bully.
...
Bravo, Rev. Michael J. Gillgannon, for speaking the Truth so clearly.

God Bless you, Fr. Michael Gillgannon, for speaking out and questioning your bishop.

Bravo for you courage Father Gillgannon and I hope you recuperate fully to have many years yet to serve the Lord in Truth and honesty.

I appreciate and applaud the courage of Fr. Michael Gillgannon to speak to his bishop openly and honestly. I hope Bishop Finn listens to him carefully, tries to understand what is going on, and begins a heart to heart dialogue with Fr. Gillgannon. Fr. Gillgannon deserves that from his Bishop.
...
Cudos to Rev Gillgannon!
...
I hope more priests and laity (I am beginning to feel that there is a very silent majority in the church) will follow Rev. Gillgannon's model and approach and begin to speak out and to encourage a faithful dialogue about the way Jesus taught us. Regarding the undermining of the documents of Vatican II which Rev. Gillgannon alludes, it seems to me that there are several bishops in the United States who have taken it upon themselves to reverse these teachings.

Thank you, Fr. Gillgannon, for your direct and insightful letter to Bishop Finn.

Thank you Father Gillgannon.

Don't get me wrong, I think many of the points that Fr. Gillgannon are valid, I just disagree with his tactics on addressing them.
...
Father Gillgannon merely acknowledged the elephant in the room - something the majority of our bench of bishops have been too cowardly to do. Father Gillgannon is a true prophet who speaks publicly, as God calls the prophet to do.

God bless you, Father Gillgannon, and thank you for being the face of Christ the Good Shepherd. Many of the faithful have been near despair over the punitive and divisive atmosphere that has poisoned the Catholic community of faith.
...
Contrary to your assertion, Father Gillgannon is exercising his proper role in the prophetic ministry of the people of God in general, but also as part of his priestly ministry - a sacramental grace of the ordained. He was both truthful and respectful even when expressing disagreement... unlike yourself.
...
A profound prayer of gratitude and celebration for Fr. Gillgannon for speaking his truth!

I heartily agree with the words and tone of this letter and would that all of us had the courage to speak our hearts like Fr Gillgannon did.

Fr. Gillgannon, thank you for your courageous words of truth.

I am of the generation of non-ordained professional ministers mentored by men like Fr. Gillgannon. I (and I am sure many others) have been waiting for these men of integrity to start speaking up so that we too may join our voices with theirs. While they shaped us in a collaborative way, they educated us enough to know that power still resides in the ordained ministry. So the first voices need to be the voices of the men who helped shape a Roman Catholic community centered in Tradition and the documents of Vatican II. Perhaps now that Fr. Gillgannon has spoken his brother priests will follow. It would be nice to see some of the courage and integrity that sparked my desire to "go and do likewise" once again. God keep Fr. Gillgannon in the palm of God's hand. Thank you, Father.
