An exquisite man, this is Fr. Al Wilder, O.P. A graduate from Harvard after WWII, he converted to Catholicism and entered the Dominican Order and is now one of the very last old-school Thomists still teaching in Rome. For years he has taught philosophy and theology in the Holy City and is much loved by all students and will be sorely missed as this is his last teaching year at Rome's Angelicum. Enjoy your retirement, Father, and we pray a new generation will pick up the torch and continue on!
