NCR’s editor and publisher passed away: Joseph Feuerherd – R.I.P.

The National Catholic Reporter reports the death of their editor in chief and publisher.

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.

I am sure I echo the sentiments of all the readers here, that we will say a sincere prayer for the repose of Mr. Feuerherd’s soul and consolation for his family and friends.

May God show him mercy. May he rest in peace.

    Only 48 years old; what a shame. His poor family. Sincere condolences, certainly, with an appeal to the Father of mercies for his everlasting beatitude in the company of the saints. May he forever rejoice in the friendship of Jesus Christ.
