R.I.P. - Dr. Ralph McInerny (1929-2010)

I just learned this evening that philospher, professor, and author, Dr. Ralph McInerny passed away this morning.  Please pray for the repose of his soul.

He was a 54 year faculty member of the University of Notre Dame (how on earth did he survive and thanks be to God that he persevered and was there as a beacon of truth!)

Dr. McInerny was also a prolific writer.  In addition to his many books on philosophy, he wrote fiction.   He was the author of the Fr. Dowling Mysteries. 

Back in March of last year, he penned a very powerful article on the Notre Dame Scandal that ran in The Catholic Thing: Is Obama worth the Mass?
