The Giants Who Go Before Us.

Recently two great thinkers have passed away. Both Fr. Richard Neuhaus and Cardinal Pio Laghi passed away a few days ago. Fr. Neuhaus was a regular contributor to the Catholic journal First Things. He was a convert from Lutheranism and served in many capacities as a priest. Cardinal Pio Laghi was the prefect emeritus of the Congregation of Catholic Education. I was able to serve mass for him a few years back when he was undergoing medical treatment in St. Paul. May they rest in peace.
