Father Neuhaus, RIP

Father Richard John Neuhaus, founder of First Things and long-time editor of the Religion and Society Report of the Rockford Institute (my alma mater) has died.

Father Neuhaus was a good friend of Christendom College and drew a good crowd whenever he visited here. He sometimes differed with the Wanderer, but admired it, he told me in a welcome letter, which I was surprised to receive just last summer.

May he rest in peace, and may First Things continue to serve Holy Mother Church.
