I had the pleasure of meeting Ralph McInerny only once. It was back in Washington DC in about 2007. My impression of him was that he was a kind and jovial man who also happened to be a philosophical genius.
McInerny was an esteemed philosopher and novelist (you probably remember the Father Dowling novels and TV series). He also became a public intellectual with a reputation for prudence.
Please say a prayer for him and read more about his wonderful life in a recent tribute written by Thomas Hibbs: Ralph McInerny (1929-2010)
