The last 40 years have been tumultuous ones for Catholicism. Seminaries emptied, priests and nuns left their vocations, people dissented from basic teachings, and children received poor catechesis. It didn't used to be this way. What happened? An unsung hero during his time, the late Fr. Richard Gilsdorf helps answer such questions by giving a precise and thorough explanation of developments in the Church since Vatican II. Indeed, no one can fully hope to understand the state of Catholicism today without this important work.

During the six years I served as bishop of Green Bay, I came to know Fr. Richard Gilsdorf as a holy priest, a Scripture scholar, teacher, and pastor, as well as a friend and confident whose opinion and insights I valued. He was faithful and loyal to the teachings of the Church and had a zeal for communicating the faith to others. This collection of his writings will both inspire and challenge any reader. He stretched my thinking and enlarged my heart; I trust he will do the same for you --ADAM CARDINAL MAIDA, Cardinal Archbishop of Detroit
Fr. Gilsdorf was a priest's priest, and was one of the first to grasp the crisis that gripped the Church after the Council. In one instance, he wrote an article for my magazine called 'The Plight of the Papist Priest' (included in this book). Its impact was so great, it was translated into five languages, and people requested it for 20 years. Reader of this volume will find this sort of unique perspective. --FR. KENNETH BAKER, SJ, Editor, Homiletic & Pastoral Review magazine
When scholars write the history of the post-conciliar Church in America, this remarkable priest will finally receive the honor due him for his fearless defense of the faith. --- JAMES LIKOUDIS, Publisher emeritus, Lay Witness magazine
Fr. Richard Gissdorf served as a priest for the Diocese of Green Bay from 1956-2005. He held post-graduate degrees in theology and languages from Columbia University and the Sorbonne, and earned his PhD in scripture studies from St. Louis University. He also taught seminary courses at Our Lady of Peace Pontifical Catechetical Institute in Beaverton, OR. His articles appeared in numerous publications, and he served as the founder and first president of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy.
