Cardinal Carlo Martini, former Archbishop of Milan, died last week from Parkinson’s disease. He was known as a rare liberal voice in the Catholic hierarchy. “He had positions,” says Harvard professor Harvey Cox, “but he had them in a way that was persuasive and open and always in the tone of inviting discussion and not staking out a position. I think that was Martini’s great strength.”
