Update May 30th, 2013 from downtown Chicago:
Andrew Greeley, an outspoken Roman Catholic priest, sociologist, best-selling author and longtime Chicago newspaper columnist has died at the age of 85. A note from the family is quoted as:
"...
we were specially graced that this man was also an amazing priest who recently celebrated the 59th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. He served the Church all those years with a prophetic voice and with unfailing dedication, and the Church he and our parents taught us to love is a better place because of him.  Our hearts are heavy with grief, but we find hope in the promise of Heaven that our uncle spent his life proclaiming to us, his friends, his parishioners and his many fans.  He resides now with the Lord of the Dance, and that dance will go on." ...entire post/read more.

 We are deeply saddened by this loss. As a friend and admirer of Fr. Greeley, I will try and keep up on the rotation of his homilies. We thank his family and close friends for giving permission to reprint these. The Homilies will come from his vast archive of wonderful words of wisdom. I'll do my best to keep the cycles straight. Thanks to all those who help, and the many who continue to request his homilies. I'll update as time permits.  Thank you Andy!

Chicago Catholics
and the Struggle with Their Church

Chicago-area Catholics mostly approve of the pope, their cardinal and their parish priest, but they don't like being told how to conduct their sex lives and they find the Sunday mass deadly dull, best-selling author and former Chicago Sun-Times columnist Andrew Greeley writes in his latest and final book....Read More
