From a facebook post:
Today we honour the life of one of the great spiritual heroes of our time. Fr John McNeill has passed into eternity and his life and legacy will warm hearts and inspire spirits for generations to come.
With a heavy heart I send my prayers of fair well to Fr. John McNeill SJ. Even though expelled from the society of Jesus, Fr John is the man Dan Berrigan described as “the Jesuit”. He was the spiritual director to an entire generation of queer Catholics. He was a prophet, a pioneer, an activist, a scholar, a friend and a spouse to Charlie. He was a proud gay man. I will miss him. I hold a dear memory of hosting him in Jeff’s and my home. RIP in John, I love you.
