The Chicago priest, novelist, sociologist, newspaper columnist, friend of importunate Catholic writers like me and many others, remains in critical but stable condition at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. Father Greeley fell and fractured his skull last Friday in a mishap getting out of a cab. Family and friends were keeping a vigil by his bedside, according to The Sun-Times. “We’re hopeful,” said his niece, Laura Durkin.
