Memories Timeline


  1. “Then the King will say to those at his right hand, “Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Matt.25:34) Eternal Rest Grant Unto Him O Lord and Let Perpetual Light shine upon him. God Bless You Joseph Sobran

  2. My sincere condolences to Joseph Sobran’s family and friends. I did not know him personally but for decades he has been my hero. His column in the Washington Times was the first thing I read in the morning when that paper was first published in the 1980s. He is irreplacable. I don’t think there will ever be another American patriotic writer quite like him. Dear Joe, may you rest in the Sacred Heart of Jesus now and forever.

  3. I was fortunate to be able to correspond with Joe over the last decade and his writing constantly amazed, provoked and enlightened me. We are all the poorer for not having him amongst us any longer but richer for what he accomplished during his short time amongst us. May his soul go to the mercy of God and may he eternally rest in peace.

  4. A voice of reason has been silenced but the words he penned remain as his legacy. Well done. Thank you from all of us who remain to stand for conservatism.

  5. To Mr. Sobran’s family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I’m sure many faithful readers have written to offer their condolences, and I also want you to know that I shall miss him a lot. I met him once at a Right To Life gathering in Michigan. I thanked him for a comment he made that the worst of the Vatican 2 “reforms” was the removal of the alter rail. He was so warm; I’ll remember our short conversation all my life. He had the integrity of the man who is uncompromising in the important things, just as his Church is in faith and morals. RIP, Joe.

  6. To the family of Mr. Sobran- I lost my dear husband Robert on Sept. 28. When I was young, Robert taught me the important thoughts of life, and introduced me to NR which he had subscribed to for 25 years at that time. When I read the Pensees of Joseph Sobran, it all made sense. I xeroxed copies and tucked them away with the issue of NR they appeared in. Now I have pulled them out to pass on to our adult children and friends to reread. ‘Single Issues’ is a brilliant book, and we were fortunate to meet Mr. Sobran and have him inscribe our copy. With the passing of Mr. Sobran, and my husband, so close in time, two men who so lovingly guided my approach to truth, I am sorry, and will miss them each, their common bond to have thought similarly and to have influenced me. May they now meet in heaven, shake hands with Mr. Chesterton, and embrace Truth Himself.
