Fr. John McNeill: Taking a Chance on God documentary

John McNeill has been a hero to the gay Catholic community for decades. A Jesuit priest for 40 years, McNeill was forced by the Vatican to leave the priesthood if he continued to minister to the gay and lesbian community. McNeill left religious life with no bank account, health insurance, etc., but he did not abandon his faith nor his dedication to serving the GLBT community.

Father McNeill was also friends with another modern gay spiritual hero, Father Mychal Judge, whom I write about in my new book, Mychal's Prayer: Praying with Father Mychal Judge.

The above video is the trailer for a new documentary on the life of Father McNeill. You can learn more about this film at www.takingachanceongod.com

As for his books, Father McNeill has written many, the most recent of which are published by Lethe Press, the publisher of my own book. Gay is a Gift! indeed!

Mychal's Prayer: "A Must-Get Book"

Very excited and grateful that Michael Scully, the creator and webmaster of the definitive site devoted to Father Mychal Judge (see Saint Mychal Judge), has written such a wonderful review of my new book, Mychal's Prayer:

"This is a must-get book for those seriously interested in the life and spirituality of Father Mychal Judge. Written by a former monk who worked with Mychal, Mychal's Prayer is a series of prayers and meditations coupled with actual examples from Mychal's extraordinary life in the Holy Spirit. It points to ways we can also live more fully in the Holy Spirit according to the gifts God has given us. Mychal's Prayer will benefit all, but especially gay Catholics who struggle within the Church."
