…with Amy Welborn in the loss of her beloved husband, author and blogger Michael Dubruiel.  As per Elizabeth Foss, Amy has been besieged with requests from friends and acquaintances as to how they can help.  From Amy:

Michael 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.

We can help this good Catholic mother and continue the legacy this father wishes to provide for his children!  Here is a brief list of Michael Dubruiel‘s books:

* A Pocket Guide to Confession

* A Pocket Guide to the Mass

* How to Get the Most Out of the Eucharist

* Praying in the Presence of Our Lord with Fulton J. Sheen

* Praying the Rosary

* The Biblical Way of the Cross

* The Church’s Most Powerful Novenas

* The How-To Book of the Mass

* The Power of the Cross

Fr. Z is also assembling a spiritual bouquet for the Welborn family…perhaps you’d like to leave condolences or offers of prayers.

**UPDATE:  A collection has been organized by Faith and Family Live on behalf of the Welborn Family.**

“Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.”
