Father Neuhaus

Word is out and about in the blogosphere about the hospitalization of Father Richard J. Neuhaus.  Depending on whose blog you read, he's either (in the words of the Beatles) "getting better all the time" or (in the words of Bob Dylan) "knock- knock- knocking on heaven's door".

My favorite "Neuhaus moment" came back in April of 2005, when he served as "color commentator" for EWTN's coverage of the Conclave.  Just after Cardinal Medina-Estevez announced to the world the election of Joseph Ratzinger, an open microphone caught Neuhaus' spontaneous  joy of that moment in a disbelieving, "Oh my God!".

God be with you, Father.
