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.
