Guest Book Highlights

January 30, 2015 "Father McBrien expressed the faith of so many Roman Catholics. His opinions were not extreme; he found the words to express the awesome mystery of God and Church in ways the average person would understand and embrace. He gave humanness to the Church which he so loved. He opened dialogue with anyone and everyone. Years ago, his writings were required reading when I was in Seminary and we were being prepared for work for the Kingdom of God. So much has changed over 35 years, bishops have since dismissed his writings at such a crucial time when his challenge and insight would be so valuable. It was a privilege to attend his wake and thank God for his life and his work." - Rev'd Mickey Danyluk (Windsor Locks, CT)
January 30, 2015 "You were a great man ahead of your time. You gave all of us reason to hope. RIP Father McBrien." - Dottie Broznowski (Cary, IL)
January 29, 2015 "It was a very sad day when we said goodbye as he left South Bend. We treasure the times we had together." - Rudy and Donna Leutzinger (South Bend, IN)
January 29, 2015 "God bless you Father Richard !" - William P. Murray (Norridge, IL)
January 29, 2015 "Thank God for his learning and courage and openness to dialogue with so many. His legacy will remain with Catholics and others long after our generation is gone. From a married priest grateful for his influence and support." - Father Henry Smolinski (Manchester, CT)
