Retired from the Diocese of Metuchen, N.J., Father Sebastian Muccilli continues to work tirelessly for the peace of Christ.
"I think revenge is at the basis of all the horrors that we try so hard to eradicate that somehow when we are trying to eradicate the ugliness, violence, horrors of life - in trying to eradicate the evil we find in ourselves - we find the need to be revengeful," Father Muccilli said.
It was the denial of his final request for Father Muccilli's presence at the execution which drives home the sheer evil.
"It was the man's last request," Father Muccilli stated with a bone-chilling calm. "I should have been allowed, but I was escorted out of the prison. It shows how inhuman we have become - a person being denied the presence of another human being."
It was through longtime friend, Esther Brown - a social worker who has devoted her life to people on death row - that Father Muccilli first met Grayson.
For four years they wrote often and Father Muccilli became convinced of Grayson's innocence.
Father Muccilli's early priesthood in the 1960s included 13 months at the Naval Support Activity Hospital south of Da Nang, Vietnam, where he ministered amidst the "horrors of war - death every day and sometimes the bodies of the wounded men were worse than in death."
For three and a half years in the '80s, Father Muccilli worked in a suburb of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, as director of a hospice program for abandoned and orphaned children. He brought chronically ill 3-year-old Jimmi to the U.S. and adopted, nurtured and cared for him. He is now a 23-year-old accomplished pianist.
Father Muccilli's years as a chaplain at the VA Medical Center in West Palm Beach where so "often the condition of the patients is/was as a result of the violence of war" were also not sufficient preparation for the intentional murder of the healthy, productive human being who was his friend.
In addition to parish assignments, Father Muccilli has written and worked as associate director and associate editor of Pax Christi USA, whose mission is to "create a world that reflects the peace of Christ. As a professor of moral theology at Sacred Heart School of Theology in Hales Corners, Wis., he taught the seminarians the way of justice and peace. His efforts and ministry to abolish the death penalty have been tireless and lifelong.
"In all of the life issues, we need the leadership of our priests, so we really appreciate Father Muccilli leading the way on ending the use of the death penalty," said Don Kazimir, diocesan director of the Respect Life Office.
To the delight of his friends, Father Muccilli frequently sends out an e-mail with "Etc.
