The Radical Gospel of Bishop Thomas Gumbleton

During his 38 years as auxiliary bishop of Detroit, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton became known as a tireless and prophetic voice for peace and justice. When he was installed in 1968, one the youngest U.S. bishops, Gumbleton appeared to be a rising star in the church hierarchy, but he opted for the path of radical discipleship. Although never elevated to head a diocese, he left a lasting mark as a founding president of Pax Christi USA, and he served as a member of the committee that drafted the U.S. bishops’ historic pastoral letter on nuclear war.
