Father Joseph Fessio, S.J., of Ignatius Press

In 1974 Father Joseph Fessio, S.J., returned to the United States from then-West Germany, where he had completed his doctoral studies in theology under then-Professor Joseph Ratzinger (who would later become Pope Benedict XVI). Previously Father  Fessio had been pursuing graduate studies in theology in France, mentored by Father Henri de Lubac, S.J. (later to be made a Cardinal by Pope St. John Paul II). It was Father de Lubac who proposed to Father Fessio that he write his doctoral thesis on the theology of Father Hans Urs von Balthasar, whom Father de Lubac described as 'the greatest theologian or our time...and perhaps of all time'.
