'And, Lord, what would you have me do?'

Ezekiel 3:22


by jim richmond

     50 YEARS AGO, young Catholic Rev. Michael J. Gillgannon was a minister to many of us attending the secular University of Missouri in Kansas City at the Newman House.Fr.Mike.jpg

     A dynamic, energetic, handsome, fun, young cleric, he was helpful to many of us in those changing days of Vatican II.

      He then decided to spend 2 years doing missionary work among the poor in Bolivia.

      Instead of two years, he stayed 40 years to serve there, only recently returning and retiring in Kansas City.

      Father Gillgannon is a Facebook friend of mine, and an individual and Catholic priest I hold in the greatest esteem. 

     Recently, he published a book on his experiences in Bolivia. A thoughtful, enlightening read that treads the difficulties of serving the Lord, the poor and political change.
