Paying My Respects
It's now old news. (I was not online much of the last week.) Dr. Jaroslav Pelikan has passed away.
I remember to this day the palpable joy I felt when an OCA priest told me of Dr. Pelikan's conversion -- rejoicing that someone as erudite and scholarly as he was had embraced Orthodoxy. He has now joined a more exclusive Body (or rather, moved to another part of the same Body), devoted exclusively to the praising of the All-Holy Trinity. We're grateful for his work.
Requiescat in Pace.
