R.I.P. Monsignor William Smith, 1939-2009

Monsignor Smith speaks on Veritatis Splendor in a talk called "The Moral Magisterium of Pope John Paul II"

I received the sad news tonight that we have lost Monsignor William B. Smith. I wrote about the great moral theologian when I had the honor of speaking on a panel with him in 2007.

The EWTN Web site has a profile of Monsignor Smith that tells about how he helped to preserve the Faith during the "silly season" that erupted after Humanae Vitae.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
