From Francis Beckwith’s blog I just found this news:  Ralph McInerny has died.

I haven’t read too much of his work–I didn’t realize how much fiction he has written.  I’ve read some of his writings about St. Thomas Aquinas and Thomism, and some miscellaneous articles.  Even so, I can tell he was a good thinker and teacher, and a good Catholic.

May God grant him peaceful rest, and comfort and to his family and friends.
