David Foster Wallace & God.

Head over to Verdicts for Scott D. Moringiello's post on David Foster Wallace's view of the sacred.

In an interview, Wallace said that he went through RCIA twice. Unfortunately, the interviewer did not pursue the line of questioning. In 2008, after a long battle with clinical depression and having been off his medication for some time, he killed himself. Perhaps he is an example of baptism by desire.

Grant Gallicho joined Commonweal as an intern and was an associate editor for the magazine until 2015.
