booksBest-selling novelist and Chicago Sun-Times columnist Father Andrew Greeley has passed away. He was 85.

Father Andrew M. Greeley, a prolific priest, sociologist and long-time NBC analyst, wrote more than 60 novels, including international mystery thrillers that were translated into 12 languages.

In a statement, his family said their lives “have been tremendously enriched by having the presence of Fr. Andrew Greeley in our family.”

“He served the Church all those years with a prophetic voice and with unfailing dedication, and the Church he and our parents taught us to love is a better place because of him. Our hearts are heavy with grief, but we find hope in the promise of Heaven that our uncle spent his life proclaiming to us, his friends, his parishioners and his many fans. He resides now with the Lord of the Dance, and that dance will go on.”

Many of the books were faith filled page turners! Rest In Peace.

Below was one of the final interviews with Fr Greeley after his horrible accident.
