One of Our Own

Blogger Michael Dubruiel has died. His famous wife got lots more attention in the blogosphere, but I bookmarked his blog, Annunciations on my browser and visited occasionally. He was a good, practical writer, and always kept a virtuous faith at the core of his vocation as an author.

I was thinking of this annunciation to the prophet Isaiah (25:7-8a) as being appropriate to the hopes for mourners, and a salve for the sadness we encounter too often in our Earthly pilgrimage:

On this mountain the Lord God will destroy the veil that veils all peoples, the web that is woven over all nations; he will destroy death forever. The Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces

    This is extraordinarily sad news. In addition to asking our readers to pray for the Dubruiel-Welborn family and that Michael Dubruiel may share in God’s unending joy, I want to note that Amy Welborn, Michael’s wife, has asked those who want to do something to simply buy Michael’s books. “That is what he was all about.”

    You can find Our Sunday Visitor’s web store here . Just type “Dubruiel” into the search engine.

    Thanks for adding that, Neil.

    I’m glad readers here will have a chance to surf there and look over and buy his books. A few years ago, a parishioner left his How-To Book of the Mass in the vestibule. I snatched it to check it out in between Masses, and I found it readable, helpful, and informative.
