Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J.: Rest in Peace

Friday December 12th 2008, 2:35 pm

Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J., died today, on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. He was 90 years old. I’ve benefited much from his writing, especially the essays he’s produced over the last fifteen years. His hallmarks were humility, clarity, and comprehensiveness. See his online work on the Filioque controversy, justification, capital punishment … it’s a long list. See the bibliography (with links) here. He always paid due attention to the ancient Fathers and, remarkably, every generation of their offspring!

May he rest in peace.
