Joseph Bottum writes on the First Things blog, "Avery Cardinal Dulles was one of the greatest thinkers in the modern Roman Catholic church and perhaps its most distinguished representative in the United States. The first American to be named a cardinal soley for his theological work, and for his last two decades a professor at Fordham University, he was acknowledged to be the dean of American Catholic thought."His influence, however, extended far beyond the United States."
Thaddeus M. Baklinski writes at LifeSiteNews.com "Cardinal Avery Dulles ... loss is mourned by pro-life and pro-family advocates in the U.S. and around in the world, who found in the Cardinal a staunch supporter and a strong voice against the incursions of the culture of death."
