Death of Joseph Fitzmyer SJ

On December 24th, Joseph Fitzmyer, one of the most respected Catholic biblical scholars passed away.  Here is a link to an article of remembrance via America.  He, along with Raymond Brown, were two of the most prominent scholars who emerged after the council.  Many of you would know him from his editorship of The New Jerome Biblical Commentary.

May he Rest In Peace.

May he rest in peace. I remember reading a little bit of his work on the Gospel of St Luke and how he asserted the importance of studying St Luke.
