Bishop Gumbleton's Visit to Minneapolis has been Cancelled due to Illness

It was announced this morning at the Basilica of St Mary, my parish, in Minneapolis, that the scheduled presentation for Tuesday night by retired Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit has been cancelled. Apparently the Bishop is ill and under his doctor's instructions not to do any travelling.

The subject of the presentation of the controversial Bishop, who often spoke on Peace and Justice issues, was to have been "Is There Room For Me In This Church?" The 75 year old Bishop recently had revealed that he had been abused by a priest when he was a child. See here for a Google search on him.

Prayers for his health are in order, no matter what you think of some of his positions.
