Back when the Maryknolls served God.

Yes, it's wonderful to remember that. This would have been before they all got into "liberation theology" and went romping off to undermine Latin America.
But it's so sad when you think of it. What wonderful people they had, what brave and faithful people. I used to love reading the Maryknoll Mission magazine in doctors' offices when I was a child. And then - something happened to them all. Everything changed.

I know! And I've been thinking about this nearly all day.How far,the Maryknolls have fallen.Sad and pathetic.
I'm reading the story of another wonderful Maryknoll priest,Father Capodanno.He was a chaplin during the Viet Nam war.He was killed trying to administer the sacraments to a soldier.I think I remember hearing on EWTN's shortwave radio a couple of months ago that when they were able to get to Father and examine him - he had 30 some bullets in him!! I would consider him a martyr too.
