The Cardinal Newman society has this release announcing the passing of Dr. Ralph McInerny, professor of philosophy at Notre Dame for 50 years, and partly responsible for the development of the curriculum of the International Catholic University, the curriculum that Holy Apostles College and Seminary uses for its distance learning program. He has had a tremendous impact on Catholic scholars and Catholic education in the US. Please remember him in your prayers.
UPDATE: Here's a beautiful tribute to Dr. McInerny. He was a person after my own heart.
