Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord...
and let perpetual light shine upon him.

Fr. Louis Bouyer has gone to his reward. I have often seen him described as an "Oratorian", but he was a member of the French Oratory, not the original type of Congregation. He wrote a fine little book on St. Philip Neri, and another book on Venerable Newman.

May his soul and the souls of the faithful departed though the mercy of God rest in peace!

I didn't realise that he was still alive! I thought he had passed away some time ago - anyway, to my mind, he had a better understanding of the _mind_ of Newman than most (all?) of his other biographers (including Kerr.).
