Father Richard John Neuhaus, R.I.P.

Today, a little before 10 A.M. Father Neuhaus passed on to rest in Jesus. Read more here.

I learned of Father Neuhaus while still a college student at Harding University. He and Alan Bloom had two new books out that Professor Raymond Muncy kept going on about, The Naked Public Square, by Neuhaus and The Closing of the American Mind, by Bloom. Both were great and timely books. Later, Father Neuhaus would help start and become editor of First Things. I always loved to hear him speak, both because he was so logical, but also because he spoke out of love, Christ's love.

Well done, Father Neuhaus.
