October 2009 Dateline
"I remain an ordained priest and exiled member of the Roman Catholic faith, I pray daily to the Holy Spirit for a transformation of the Catholic Church into an agent of the Holy Spirit listening to what the Holy Spirit is saying through the people of God. I see the DignityUSA organization as one of the primary instruments of the Holy Spirit leading the way to that transformation. I will continue to do whatever I can to support Dignity’s God-given mission."
Father John J. McNeill
in Reflections on the Fiftieth Anniversary
of my Ordination to the Priesthood
