Today marks the 24th anniversary of the great Swiss theologian [and cardinal-elect] Hans Urs von Balthsar. 
Von Balthasar was a brilliant theologian who served the Church well. His theological legacy continues in the publication of his books and articles and through the international Communio journal.
He was nominated by Blessed John Paul II to be a cardinal three times, declining the dignity twice; the third time he accepted it but he died the night before receiving the cardinal’s hat.
Eternal memory!
