I've met Father Pennington several times and enjoyed his writing. I first met him when I was a student at Creighton University some years ago. Most recently spent a day with him at Conyers where he was abbot at the time. He died on June 3 (Feast of the Sacred Heart), I'm surprised this didn't make more of a splash--he along with others mentioned by Amy et al was one of the "hit" Catholic authors of the modern age.
