Richard Neuhaus gone 6 years

Casual RJNToday marks the 6th anniversary of death of Father Richard John Neuhaus.

Personally, I miss him: his voice “crying in the desert,” his friendship, and his intellect and priestly presence. The¬†clear¬†integration and articulation of faith and reason, a vibrant faith and the public order have been wounded by RJN’s death in 2009. Many feel the same.

May God be merciful.

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of priests, protect him.

Mass for Richard John Neuhaus, a 2nd anniversary remembrance


Today is the second anniversary of death of the Reverend Father Richard John Neuhaus. Father Neuhaus was a priest of the Archdiocese of New York and the Friends will be gathering at 12:15 pm to pray the Sacrifice of the Mass, The Church of Our Saviour, 38th Street & Park Avenue, NYC. Father George Rutler will be the celebrant.

Let us pray for Father Neuhaus (and hope that RJN prays for each of us).
Eternal rest grant on Father Neuhaus, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him May rest in peace.

Richard Neuhaus is not here…

RJN ordination1.jpgLast evening a segment of the faithful gathered at St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the Sacrifice of the Mass, celebrated by Archbishop Celestino Migliore, on the first anniversary of the death of a friend, Father Richard John Neuhaus. It is hard to conceive with ease that a year has past since Father Richard passed from life to Life. He died a year ago as a result of complications to cancer at 72.

Father George Rutler’s terrific homily may be read here.
Also, there is Robert Louis Wilken’s article, “An Anniversary.”
