On to Glory.

Fr. Neuhaus has gone on to glory. I was only vaguely aware of who he was before his death. I've spent some time since getting to know him through his writings, and as many have been, am blessed by them.

For those interested, here are my own reminiscences, online today in the Weekly Standard.

If you haven't yet met Fr. Neuhaus, you can get a glimpse of what he and his life were about here, in an essay written by him in February 2000, “Born Toward Dying.” It is worth taking the time to read. Whether you agree with his theology or not, his words are a feast.

I was going to make this a separate post but it seems fitting somehow to share it in the same post with Fr. Neuhaus' news. I'm a global thinker and make connections and parallels in odd places. Do you see the similarities here? Putting away the old, embracing the Living?
