Death of Father Neuhaus

Father Richard John Neuhaus, a convert to Catholicism whose name became synonymous with religion in the public square, died today at the age of 72 due to the "side effects" of cancer. There will be lots of news coverage of the death of this notable Catholic, but I think Gary Stern at Blogging Religiously succinctly and effectively captured the significance of Father Neuhaus' work, his vision, his legacy and his personality.
