Blame it on the Boss in Roma

Bully pulpit takes on a new meaning

Father Kevin O’Neill – One of a few good men


Sequoia-close-treeee

Kevin J. O’Neil,

 Redemptorist priest and associate professor of moral theology at the Washington Theological Union.

 

He has published numerous articles in books and journals of theology.   He holds a doctorate in sacred theology (STD) from the Alphonsian Academy in Rome. He is both admired and respected by legions of active an ‘collapsed’ Catholics.  ( See: Maureen Dowd, Why, God? New York Times)

Excerpt:

“When my friend Robin was dying, she asked me if I knew a priest she could talk to who would not be, as she put it, “too judgmental.” I knew the perfect man, a friend of our family, a priest conjured up out of an old black-and-white movie, the type who seemed not to exist anymore in a Catholic Church roiled by scandal. Like Father Chuck O’Malley, the New York inner-city priest played by Bing Crosby, Father Kevin O’Neil sings like an angel and plays the piano; he’s handsome, kind and funny. Most important, he has a gift. He can lighten the darkness around the dying and those close to them.”

Seriously? Siriusly

Father Dave –  The Busted Halo –  talks with Father Kevin O’Neil about some of the challenging questions found in the new book that he co-authored entitled “Life, Death, and Catholic Medical Choices: 50 Questions from the Pews” – including, but not limited to, those about the sanctity of end-of-life treatment, issues of abortion and levels of material cooperation, and the difference between ordinary and extraordinary medical measures.
