A Saint Comes Marching In

His life story is "faith in action".

Now, he will become one of the canonized blessed.

The Church will recognize his heroic virtue on October 11.

Some Final Words

Amy Welborn posts a lovely remembrance of her late husband, Michael Dubruiel, along with the details of the viewing and Mass of Christian Burial.

I had purchased this book some time ago. I encourage you to do the same, not only for its content, but because the royalties are paying for a college fund for their youngest children.

He wrote and spoke the Word well. May he soon see the Beatific Vision.

UPDATE: Rich Leonardi has a post about some of Michael's books (via Our Sunday Visitor).

UPDATE: Catholic author Danielle Bean offers information on how you can help as well.

Up In Smoke

Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago, Illinois and the surround campus is undergoing a significant renovation.

This morning, after what happened, it looks like there will be more work.

A Thief In The Night

I saw the post by the Curt Jester.

I went to the source myself.

I understand the shock of suddenness; I've been there.

This is a great loss to the Catholic writing community, both in books and 'blogging.

But not as much as losing a husband and father.

You are in my prayers.

Requiescat In Pace.
