Fr. Neuhaus is dying

For any other fans of Fr. Richard John Neuhaus (editor in chief of First Things, which I love)... according to NRO:

His friends and family are keeping vigil and he was administered last rites shortly after midnight. Fr. George Rutler, who gave him the Catholic Sacrament, says that “he is not expected to live long” and suggests “that it is appropriate that prayers be offered for a holy death.”

Sancte Ioseph, ora pro eo.

Update: Fr. Neuhaus died Thursday morning. Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis: Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
