Item Description...
The last 50 years have been confusing, tumultuous ones for Catholicism. Seminaries emptied, priests and nuns left their vocations, people dissented from basic teachings, and children received poor catecheses. What happened? This book answers that question. Part history, part Bible study, part apologetics manual, part Marian devotional, part catechism, The Signs of the Times is all profound insight into our turbulent times. As such, it is not only an eye-opening and truly important book for any Catholic, it is the key to comprehending the state of the Church in America today and to gaining a sense of hope for her future.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Fr. Richard Gilsdorf was born to Wilbert and Gladys Gilsdorf on January 24, 1930, in Green Bay, WI. He attended that city's Central Catholic High School and then the St. Lawrence Minor Seminary in Mt. Calvary, WI. He received his BA at St. Norbert College in DePere, WI, in 1952, and then went to study Theology at St. Meinrad Seminary in St. Meinrad, IN, after which he received holy orders to the priesthood at the hand of Bishop Stanislaus V. Bona, at Green Bay's St. Francis Xavier Cathedral on May 26, 1956. He served his first appointment at St. John Church in Little Chute, WI, for two years, and then received assignment to the faculty of Sacred Heart Minor Seminary near Green Bay. From 1960-61, he took a leave of absence to pursue advanced studies in classical languages at Columbia University in New York City, where he received his master's in Greek in 1961. He then attended the Sorbonne in Paris, France, where he earned his Certificat du Cours Sup??rieur in 1963. In 1970, he received a second master's degree in Scripture from St. Louis University, and he completed his doctoral studies in Scripture in 1973. He served at a number of parishes in the Green Bay diocese, was active in the diocesan migrant worker apostolate, and taught summer courses in Scripture at the Pontifical Catechetical Institute in Beaverton, OR, for four straight years. During then-Bishop Adam Maida's tenure as ordinary for the Green Bay diocese, Fr. Gilsdorf served as a member of the Presbyteral Council and the College of Consultors. He was founder and, from 1994-99, president of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy, an organization of priests, deacons, and seminarians promoting loyalty to the Holy Father and the authoritative teachings of the Catholic Church. For the final 23 years of his priestly life he served as pastor of Holy Trinity Church in Casco, WI. After several years of serious illness and much suffering, Father passed to his eternal reward on May 4, 2005. The following prayer appeared on his ordination announcement: Thou art a Priest Forever To live in the midst of the world without wishing for its pleasures; To be a member of every family, yet belonging to none; To share all sufferings; To penetrate all secrets; To heal all wounds... To daily go from men to God and offer Him their petitions; To return from God to men to bring pardon and hope; To have a heart of fire for charity and a heart of bronze for chastity; To teach and to pardon, console and bless always, My God, what a life! And it is yours, O Priest of Jesus Christ

Richard W. Gilsdorf was born in 1930 and died in 2005.
