I’ve seen this in a couple of different places and although I doubt it’ll add much, every prayer counts.  It seems Fr. Richard John Neuhaus, inter alia editor of First Things, now has not only a return of his cancer to deal with but a sudden and severe health issue.  Raymond Arroyo of EWTN has more.  St. Peregrine, St. Luke, Mary Mother of us all, pray for him!

Update: As Keith noted in the combox, Fr. Neuhaus has passed to his eternal reward.  Let us pray for the blessed repose of his soul.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine:

et lux perpetua luceat ei.


Lux aeterna luceat ei Domine:

Cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es.

Requiem aeternam dona ei Domine,

et lux perpetua luceat ei.

    Fr. Neuhaus died early this (Thursday) morning.


    Requiescant in Pace

    Thanks, Keith. I just noticed that myself as well. Very sad. May the angels carry him to his Mother’s bosom.

    Yes, sad for us…

    However, not sad for him, I suspect. While Fr. Neuhaus often said he expected to spend time in purgatory, I would give my left arm to be in purgatory myself. 🙂

    I can only hope that I can model Fr. Neuhaus myself someday (should God choose to allow me to be ordained.)
