Product Description

Walter F. Sullivan was the bishop of the Richmond, Virginia, diocese for twenty-five years. One of a generation of post-Vatican II bishops appointed by Pope Paul VI, Sullivan became famous for his pastoral leadership, and later his courage in proclaiming peace. This stand did not sit well with conservatives in his diocese, who complained to Rome and precipitated a humiliating investigation. But Sullivan's courage in denouncing nuclear weapons, his compassion for the margianalized, poor, and imprisoned, and his wide embrace of Protestant and Jewish believers earned him the love of a wide specturm of admirers. "I am a loyal son of the Church," he declared. "It is my home. But I am not a company man." He willingly paid the price for making that distinction.
