Fr. Michael Scanlan died this morning. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
He, more than anybody else, made Franciscan University into the powerhouse of renewal and evangelization that has done so much good for the American Church and the world. We owe him a great debt and may he receive a great reward now.
I met him once. A sweet, good man with a sharp mind. God bless him!
