Richard Neuhaus to George Higgins, 12/2/1991

Richard Neuhaus converted to Catholicism in 1990, and became a priest in 1991.  Here, Higgins sends a note on Neuhaus's ordination, and Neuhaus responds.  After reading the correspondence, consider the following

1.  What does Higgins say about Neuhaus's ordination?

2.  How does Neuhaus characterize his ordination?

3.  Do you think the fact that both were Catholic priests as of 1991 changed their relationship?
