Andrew Greeley: The Lion in Winter

On Oct 7 the PBS program Religion and Ethics featured a segment on Fr. Andrew Greeley. It marked the first time he has made a public appearance, I believe, since he suffered a traumatic brain injury in November 2008.

The film includes remarks by his niece, Eileen Durkin, and his longtime friend, Fr. John Cusick, some clips of Greeley commenting on church problems in the old days, and poignant shots of Greeley, assisted by Cusick and surrounded by his relatives, saying Mass at the home of Eileen.
