A friend’s view of Cardinal Dulles

Jesuit Father Jim Martin, who counted Cardinal Avery Dulles as a friend for the last 10 years, has a very personal tribute to the late cardinal in the On Faith blog sponsored by Newsweek and The Washington Post. Writing about a life that was “like something out of a Henry James novel,” Father Martin, associate editor of America magazine, gives examples of the cardinal’s lightheartedness and especially of the humility that made him reluctant to mention by name the Washington airport that honors his father, former U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.
