Richard John Neuhaus, RIP

Gerald J. Russello, Editor

We join in the mourning of the passing of Fr. Richard John Neuhaus. As the founding editor of the journal First Things, he personified the engaged believer, whose role in a pluralist society he so ably defended in his work. It is not too much to say that he changed the way Americans think about the relationship between faith and culture, religion and society, and the obligations owed to Caesar and to God. His wise words, humor, and counsel will be missed from the public square.

May he rest in peace.

The survival of any culture, or of the material fabric of civilization, requires vigorous imagination and readiness to sacrifice. By dullness and complacency are intellectual and social orders undone.
