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
