Pope Benedict XVI, Cardinal Francis George, and others paid tribute to the late Cardinal Avery Dulles, the first American theologian to be named a cardinal. Pope Benedict commended “the late cardinal’s noble soul to God, the Father of Mercies, with immense gratitude for the deep learning, serene judgment and unfailing love of the Lord and his Church which marked his entire priestly ministry and his long years of teaching and theological research. At the same time I pray that his convincing personal testimony to the harmony of faith and reason will continue to bear fruit for the conversion of minds and hearts and the progress of the gospel for many years to come.”
