Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR – May rest in peace

I first met Fr. Michael Scanlan in January 1971, only 15 months after he had been baptized in the Spirit. It was at a gathering in Ann Arbor, Michigan for leaders of the fledgling Catholic Pentecostal movement as it was called in those days. He was a vibrant, articulate priest who commanded attention and he had dared to embrace this new grace that was breaking into the Church. I had been present at the Duquesne Weekend in February, 1967, when the Holy Spirit fell “as by a new Pentecost.” Others may write about Fr. Michael’s many accomplishments as President of Franciscan University; surely his natural talents were remarkable. But I would like to honor him for the way he welcomed the Holy Spirit into his own life and allowed himself to be used by the Spirit in exercising the special charisms he received.
