Despite all the acclaim Cardinal Dulles has received, sometimes I think he is under-rated and even under-appreciated. Perhaps because he is familiar to many of us? That beret and jaunty chin gliding across the quad in front of Keating Hall?

Sometimes I think that one hundred years from now there will be a beautification or canonization going on at Fordham-one for Avery Dulles. (Perhaps an African Pope will travel to the Bronx and his helicopter will land in the Stadium?)

Avery Dulles is in the same league as John Henry Newman. He deserves our close study and continued attention. bvo
