Vale, Lawrence Auster.I don't know if anyone else knows or cares, but I have just learned that Lawrence Auster passed from this life on Good Friday.
He wasn't someone that I corresponded with; he was a blogger that I read occasionally - because I had the tendency to get blogged down in his works. He had a lot of worthy and thought-provoking posts.
While it's sad and I am crying, it's also uplifting in a way that some will find difficult to understand.
Good Friday is a good day to die, especially when you have just been received into the Catholic Church.
 And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.  But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?
 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil.  And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom.  And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.  And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.  And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.Luke 23:39-45
