I reported earlier that Fr. Richard John Neuhaus was said to be near death after learning recently of cancern and then coming down with a severe infection.
I learned through a comment in my original post that he passed away just before 10:00am.
Requiescat in pace, Father Richard John Neuhaus. Pray for him.
Here is something written by Joseph Bottum at the First Things site - where many of Father's writings appeared....
Richard John Neuhaus, 1936–2009
Here is an essay Joseph Bottum posted by Fr. Neuhaus, originally written in 2000:
Born Toward Dying by Father Richard John Neuhaus
We will dearly miss this priest who had such a large presence in writing and in media.
Te Deum Laudamus! Home
