Judge John T. Noonan, Jr., R.I.P.

John T. Noonan, Jr., judge of the Ninth Circuit since his appointment in 1985, has died.  He was 90.  A good and faithful servant of our Lord first, he was a jurist of great distinction and a legal historian with a breadth approached by none.  If you haven't read his book, Persons and the Masks of the Law, now is the time --  it shows how love works in law.  Please join me in praying for the happy repose of the soul of John T. Noonan, Jr., a man who unashamedly communicated love wherever he traveled.
