A Message To Father McKenna’s Readers


Unc George 44All is well.  My name is Joe Tucker and I help Fr. McKenna with his Blog on a weekly basis.  I am fortunate to be related to Uncle George through marriage.  He is thrilled with the success of this Blog and that his message of Christ’s love for us has spread across the world – now having over 16,000 views in 111 different countries.

This Tuesday, May 6, Fr. McKenna celebrates the 70th Anniversary of his Ordination.  Each week Fr. George’s family shares with him the stats and the comments that come through God Is Good!  If you have the time, and the inclination, please drop a note to Father through a comment on this blog.  Look through his old posts – I am sure there is a message that will touch your heart.  Each comment and note will be read by and enjoyed by Fr. McKenna.

Share a story, let him know how he has touched your life, or the lives of those you’ve shared his stories with.   He does not know that I have put this request out, but I do know how special this Servant of God is to my life and the lives of hundreds, probably thousands of people across the world.  And I do know that each of you have a story to share.  God Bless.

An Updated Note – Saturday May 3 @ 7:30am

Thank you to all of Uncle George’s friends, followers and readers.  The response has been tremendous and it is so wonderful to read your stories of love an admiration for this wonderful man.  We will be giving all these comments – and any others that will continue to come in – to Father McKenna today.  He will be so surprised, and so touched by your words of love.

  1. I met Fr. McKenna at the Midway Chapel, many years ago. To this day, he remains one of the most inspirational men I know personally. There are only two priests that I know, that I can say that I still remember the message of their homily over 15+ years later (and in Fri. McKenna’s case, more like 20+). I wish him all the best on this most wonderful of occasions.

  2. Congratulations on the anniversary of your Ordination. How can it be 70 years. I met you around 2005 at the Midway Chapel. I was delayed between flights and we had a long visit and related I had started my work career at Midway Airport back in ’74 when that was one flight a day maintained by Northwest as a favor to the Chicago Dept. of Aviation. I was the manager at Buffler Aviation When they were located over on 55th in what is now Southwest Hangar, I believe.
    You were playing golf back then still and used to tell me about your golf games on regular basis (all true stories you assured me). I used to send you postage quite often but since you have gone electronic I haven’t had a chance to communicate. My family and I love your posts and wish you continued good health and congratulate you on your contributions to many many many Catholics and I’m sure many non-Catholics as well.
    God Bless you,
    Jim & family

  3. You have always held a special place in my heart and that of my mother, Helen. We always looked forward to attending your masses at Midway airport! Oh, to be able to go back in time and attend those beautiful masses, and listen to your wonderful 3 minute homilies. All the best Father George on your 70th anniversary. God bless you!

  4. Congratulations on your 70th Anniversary. We first met at Quigley in 1955 and you have been a part of my life since then. I have your books and have often given them to family and friends as gifts. Your books are truly inspirational. You have been such an important part of and a spiritual part of so many lives over your many years as a priest. I know God will reward you well in the next life. Please, when you get to heaven, keep me in your prayers, as you are always in mine. my best to you on your Blessed Anniversary.

  5. Hi, Father. From the first day I met you at Quigley South 1963 when you eased the fears of a frightened freshman by calling him by name and seeming to know my whole family, you have been a special person to me. Life seemed to come full circle when I moved into St. Barnabas with my family in 1974 and found out my pastor was Fr. McKenna. Happy Anniversary, Father. While you’re celebrating on May fourth my granddaughter, Greta will be receiving her first communion in Milwaukee pray for her and we’ll pray for you. Jack Carlson

  6. Happy 70th Anniversary………….. Father McKenna was an instrumental part of my childhood at St. Barnabas. I graduated in 1977 and I will always remember the warm gentle spirit that he is. Always happy to see the kids and sincerely interested in their well being.

  7. Congratulations Father George. It’s Kathy Graham, Monica’s sister in law. You have been a wonderful priest in the Kearney family and we treasure your friendship. It all started back in the 60’s at Christ the King Parish. You were our favorite then, and even more so now, being “related”. We’ll never forget your kindness to us during my loving Dad’s passing – there you were at his bedside with all of us surrounding him. That memorable evening was also one of Pat and Monica’s first dates. My Dad was happy that they were dating, and told me he hoped it was “the one”. How wonderful that you were a part of this. Thank you for being a gift to the Kearney’s and Graham’s and sure hope to see you at Annie’s graduation party in June. Much love and blessings to you always.

  8. I was a Saint Barnabas student in the 70’s when Father McKenna was our Pastor.
    I remember fondly how warm and engaging he was with everyone in the Parish, old and young. Father seemed to know all the students by name, or so he made you feel as though you had a personal connection. I will forever hold Father McKenna close to my heart. He is the real deal of being God’s servant.

  11. I have a small coin from the Holocaust Museum that says, “What you do matters.” When I hold it I think of you, Fr. McKenna, because what you have said and done has truly mattered to me, and to countless others. Attending your mass in Midway and meeting you afterwards – and you with such a joyous smile – is something I will never forget. I have your 3 minute sermon books, read them, and share them. So the life you have lived has been important – and for any of us, that is all we can ask. May God bless you always.

  13. Thank you for simply being YOU! For us here, YOU have been a gift beyond measure, and a true friend. Your love of life, your simplicity and pure humbleness, your smile and laughter have meant the world to us here, as has knowing that you keep this little flock of sparrows close to your heart, and in your prayers, as you will always remain in ours. As you celebrate this milestone in your life, know that you are loved and treasured. Congratulations to you on your 70th Anniversary, and to your fellow priests, as they too celebrate the joys of the priesthood! The little Eskimo mother and her children still venture out into the cold, and worship the living Christ through you. God Bless you today, and always! May Our Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around you and yours, and keep you close to her Immaculate Heart. Be Joyful, and celebrate the gifts that you have been given through the grace of the Holy Spirit! Sending you all our love and prayers! And….a few hugs too!

  14. The only reason I (along with my brothers) was able to attend St. Barnabas school was because of the warm and generous heart of Father McKenna. He has a heart of gold and not only taught the way of the Lord but lived it. He made each of us feel welcome and special in some way; he really did know the name of each student in that school. He changed our lives by welcoming us into St. Barnabas. Thank you very much Father McKenna and congratulations!

  15. I met Fr. McKenna at Midway Airport Chapel in 2006. We have been in contact since. I was able to join Fr. McKenna on a trip to Israel in 2008, when an unexpected opening came up. I will never forget that trip. Fr. McKenna has been an inspiration to me over the years both through his letters to me and his homilies. We wish him well and a very happy anniversary. God bless you, Fr. McKenna. With live, your friend in Christ.

  17. I am a follower of your blog because of the spirit and nature of your writings. So I celebrate with your friends and church family as an outsider. More than that, a Protestant who loves your engagement with God and so together, we are followers of Jesus Christ – Christians – and therefore brothers. Happy 70th anniversary of your ordination – called of God to touch the lives, hearts and souls of a needy world with the love of Jesus – grace and peace

  18. Hi Father,
    Love your blog and look forward to receiving it. Brings back so many memories of your wonderful guidance at Maryville. Ed and I had often told our boys your “Joe Doaks” stories and I always pass on your blog to the three of them and my grandchildren. God Bless you on your 70th Anniversary and I pray that we will have many more years of your guidance!

  19. Hi Fr. George! I am so happy to hear from your friend, Joe, that you are having your 70th anniversary of your ordination. What a lifespan of dedication to God and his followers. You touched my life in the most beautiful way – meeting you in 2008 as I was waiting for a plane back to Seattle – feeling a sense of dread to get on that plane – and hearing “Catholic Mass will be starting in the Midway Airport Chapel at 4:00 pm”. I hadn’t been to mass in 18 years! Something told me to go up to the chapel and then – you and setting your timer for the most powerful ‘3 minute’ homily that I have ever heard! And then, buying your book – “Wisdom and Humor from the Pulpit” – and reading it over the phone to my ailing mother who resided in Indiana. Sending you a Christmas card that year – telling you how much your homily and book meant to me! You writing me back and telling me how much my letter touched YOU! Several more letters exchanged and then, there I was going to confession and attending mass – and have done so regularly ever since! You brought me back to Our Lord – your words are so beautiful and there are SO many meaningful stories that you have told – it would be impossible to select a favorite. And, your kind words and joy when others feel joy, and your sharing of sorrow – you are really a wonderful priest!

    Tim and I wish you a very happy 70th anniversary and we will be seeing you around June 5th. (I’ll call you to confirm). And thank you to your friend, Joe Tucker – what a wonderful way to continue to be comforted and shown the way by Fr. George via this spectacular blog! THANK YOU, JOE!! This blog means the world to those of us who cannot regularly visit Fr. George.

    Fr. George, I continue to pray for you daily and think of you so very often! May God continue to bless you with good health and happiness and may you know that you have changed my life in ways that are immeasurable. Thank you! I love you!

    Love,
    Nancy

  20. Hi, Father McKenna, Congratulations for your 70 anniversary of ordination. Maryville must have been your first assignment. I developed a special admiration for you then. I had been at Maryville for four years then so I was probably in sixth grade. You always seemed to be a peaceful person and one who radiated Christ. You still do. I enjoy reading your down to earth column that plugs us in to the ordinary events of life and helps us see and serve Christ. Thank you and I promise to pray for you.

  21. Father, you’ve enriched our lives with your presence. It’s been our blessing to have known you as you are a most “humble servant of God”.
    As you “Let Your Light Shine Before All”, you became our inspiration.. Thanks for reminding us that the three most important words to say…I LOVE YOU… has warmed many hearts. Thank you for all these years of dedication to your vocation, and may God continue to bless you. Fran Anderson and Family

  24. Dear Fr. McKenna: In 1973, you urged me to attend Quigley South. From there I went to Niles College, and later to St. Mary of the Lake Seminary. Although I was not ordained, I grew in my Catholic faith and found that God had a very different vocation in mind for me as a husband and father. I have come to understand that I owe much to you and your priesthood in leading me in the right direction. May God bless you always! John T. Benz

I remember being a server for you when you celebrated mass. I also have a fond memory of your quiet grace and manner. Take care. Bill Gallagher, Cincinnati

  27. I love that every student from St. Barnabas has mentioned how Fr. McKenna knew everyone’s name! He truly did! (And that was a *lot* of kids!).

    Congratulations on your 70th Anniversary! I like that you were a part of so many important milestones in our lives – First Holy Communion, Reconciliation, Confirmation, Graduation. Your sweet & loving nature made an impression on so many of us & we were so blessed to have you in our parish.

    St. Barnabas is celebrating it’s 90th Anniversary this year, with an all school reunion on June 7th. We hope you can attend! (And we won’t hold it against you if you don’t remember all of our names!)

  34. On the auspicious occasion of your 70th anniversary in the priesthood, Jim and I offer our sincere congratulations to a wonderful priest and friend who has touched countless lives for the better.

    When I come into work each Monday, the first thing I do is read Father George’s blog. How inspiring are his words on his time spent in the Holy Land, his love of France, his ministry in Alaska, and his beloved Midway Airport Chapel. And I love how Father George will focus on the little things in life and remind us to be gracious to people, kind, spend time listening and pray.

    God Bless you and reward you for your dedicated service these past 70 years!

    What a special day it was in 2009 when you were saying mass at Midway Chapel. You gave me a signed copy of your book! I wrote you a thank you card when I finished reading it. You wrote me back and that is how our friendship began. Every few weeks I receive a letter from you! How exciting it is to open my mail box and see your hand writing! We are blessed to have you in our lives. You have become a part of our family. All our visits are so special and dear to our hearts. Thank you for all you do. You are an inspiration to us all.

  43. Father McKenna,
    You drove this 13 year old home from Quigley after the tornado hit the south side on April 21, 1967. We were enjoying a Friday night open gym and pool at the school. Thank God that He spared us all gathered there for the mission fundraiser. Unfortunately Oak Lawn High School was badly damaged and over 30 people lost their lives in the area not far from Quigley. I remain grateful for your kindness getting me home that night as well as your spiritual direction and your theology instruction in that my freshmen year.
    Your writings in your Midway bulletins the past 10 years also got me to travel to that most beautiful cathedral in Chartes while on a trip to France a few years ago. Your description was right on. Someday I would like to go back and also visit all those other beautiful holy places in France you’ve vividly described, to see those remote areas of Alaska where you worked after Quigley and Barnabas, and to travel to the Holy Land as you have so many times.
    I have kept many of your wonderful Midway messages, and I read your blog weekly. Most important to me of your efforts is your leading me to my heavenly reward. Thank you and God bless you for all you have done for so many over the past 7 decades. Happy Anniversary!

  45. Happy Anniversary, Fr McKenna! You were my first Spiritual Director at Quigley in 1957. After a slight period of time (about 50 years), you came back into my life. And I am very grateful. Your books and weekly messages have meant a great deal to me and have been extremely helpful. Your message about a mass you said in Alaska on a bitterly cold day, and attended only by a young Alaskan mother and her three young children was amazing. I will never know a better example of how profound the Eucharist really is. A humble man, a simple table, and then, the King of Kings was present. Thank you for a lifetime of showing what it means to be a man of God.

  48. Dear Father McKenna,
    Congratulations on the 70th anniversary of your ordination to the priesthood. What a blessing it is for all of us who are fortunate enough to know you. Thank you for all the hard work throughout your ministry, especially for the comfort and wisdom we find in your bulletins. You are a great example of devotion and resourcefulness by finding a way to continue to preach “to all creatures” even during difficult times. Hooray for the blog!
    A favorite message that has stayed with me from your homilies follows: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I can do nothing without Your help. My abilities and talents come to nothing if You do not stand next to me. Try God. Dio Basta. God is enough! May God continue to stand with you and bless you always! Happy Anniversary!

  49. Dear Father McKenna,
    You were our neighbor at St. Barnabas for most of my youth. I remember your kind gentleness. I remember your two little dogs who followed you so faithfully. I remember being unable to understand why you wanted leave Chicago to go to Alaska. As I got older, I understood that you ‘heard the owl call your name’, and you had to go where God wanted you. Thank you for sharing your spirit with us. Congratulations on your 70th anniversary.

What a great mark you left on all of our six kids. Your gentle kindness and expansive knowledge of the church, saints and theology made a strong impression on all.
