My Archbishop

Paul/Minneapolis, Harry Flynn.  Our diocese was run from 1975-1995 by Archbishop John Roach, who was basically a Midwest version of Cardinal Mahoney.  When Archbishop Flynn came in, he quietly reformed the seminary and put more solid priests in place in key parishes.  He wasn't nearly as vocal in criticizing the liberal element among the clergy as he could have been, but the Archdiocese got a lot better in his 12 years as Archbishop.

Not one liberal priest was replaced in Milwaukee that I know of.  And I know of many who were not.  We have an _organization_ here, Milwaukee Area Priests Association, that was formed to, in essentially their own words, band together to fight the new archbishop (Dolan) because he was too loyal to "Rome".  It was founded by the guy who ran the seminary when it was known as a gay bathhouse.  It still exists, and I think 20% or so of the priests in the area belong.

I'd like to pass on something about the archbishop.  In 2005 or so, just after he took over, I went to a rosary & Mass at the Carmelite motherhouse.  We came in a back way and passed the archbishop who was leading the rosary but for some reason was out in the hall.  No one could see him.  His eyes were closed and as we passed him silently he had such an intense look of joy and reverence on his face.  I thought "that is a holy man".
