Gilbert Mourns the Loss of Fr. Richard John Neuhaus

Father Richard John Neuhaus of First Things has passed away, sadly. First Things has posted a message from him, in the form or an essay he wrote in 2000, about the fact that we are born to die.

May he rest in peace.


  1. Raymond Arroyo had a very nice tribute to Father Neuhaus last evening on "The World Over". It re-airs several times during the week. The guests were Michael Novak and George Weigel (both very close friends of Father) and Joseph Bottums (sp?), the editor of "First Things" Magazine via telephone. Some of the clips of Father in action were very touching and yet showed his marvelous wit. Raymond said that next week's show will have more tributes as well as coverage of the funeral mass.

  2. NRO also has a tribute here.

  3. That's great, thanks Carol and Bob, for the helpful links.

  4. For those who might be interested in the encore presentation of "The World Over": Sunday (tomorrow) at 4 P.M. Eastern, Monday 10 a.m. Eastern, and 11 p.m. Eastern.
