From NCR: Joseph Feuerherd, NCR editor in chief and publisher, died this morning after an 18-month battle with cancer. He was 48. Funeral arrangements are pending. Feuerherd died at 8:41 a.m. Eastern time at the Montgomery Hospice's Casey House in Rockville., Md. His family was at his side. Following is an appreciation of Feuerherd written by Arthur Jones, who as Washington correspondent hired Feuerherd as an editorial intern in 1984. Their professional and personal lives were closely entwined since.

An appreciation of Joe, a distinguished Catholic journalist and editor, is here on NCR's website.

Joe's Catholic faith was such a deep part of who he was, as illustrated by his enthusiastic support for what we were trying to accomplish at Pax Christi.  He championed the contributions of women religious, worked for a less violent world, and sought greater accountability of our Church leadership to Catholics in the pews who were paying the bills. He will be missed as someone who believed passionately in the truth of the Catholic message, and sought to animate it through the written word.

Pope Francis hit out strongly against the way people have sought to manipulate Benedict’s death. “People who instrumentalize such a good person, [a man] of God, almost I would say a holy father of the church, have no ethics,” he said. “They are of a party, not of the church.”

Pope Francis repeated his pressing call for an end to the violence that has forced millions into camps for refugees or the internally displaced in South Sudan.
