Sad News

Amy Welborn, our blogger friend, sends this sad announcement.

November 16, 1958-February 3, 2009

Michael (Dubruiel) collapsed this morning at the gym and was not able to be revived despite the efforts of EMTs and hospital personnel.

We are devastated and beg your prayers.

Many thanks for all of the prayers and notes. It is overwhelming. Many have asked what they can do of a material or concrete nature. All I can say is to simply buy his books. Not from me, because I am in no position to fill orders, but from anywhere else. He long ago promised God that he would give all the royalties of The How To Book of the Mass to the children’s college funds, which he did faithfully. It is in good shape because of that. Buy them, read them, and give them away to others. Spread the Word. That is what he was all about.
(Ignatius Press carries the books.)

The last lines of Michael's last column published in the Diocesan Paper:

"None of us knows what the future holds, but hopefully we can embrace what is inscribed in our coinage, 'In God we Trust.'”

Words to live and die by.
