I'm back

Indeed. Thanks for the prayers (and the cute blog posts, sic!). It was a tough but good week...kind of like being thrown on an agitator in a washing machine set on heavy load. But with God.

But "tough" absolutely pales in comparison to what super-blogger Amy Welborn must be going through now. I just read her husband, Michael Dubruiel, died suddenly this morning. Please pray with me for Michael, Amy, and her five kids.

Revised Update: Amy updated her blog and is suggesting that people who want to help buy Michael's book, The How-To Book of the Mass, since royalties have been dedicated to the kids' college funds. A good idea. Then Our Sunday Vistor publishing decided to double the royalties to offered to their children, given the tragic circumstances. So buy the book here. Other bloggers are setting up help as well; please see the comment box for details. But above all, continue to pray with me, please.

May he rest in peace. my family's prayers are with Amy and her children. I cannot imagine what she is going through right now. May God give her strength and consolation.

FYI - Father Z is collecting spiritual bouquet posts.

Amy has requested that those who would like to help should buy Michael's books because the proceeds go directly to their kids college fund. Lisa Hendey at Catholic Mom is helping with that request at http://new.catholicmom.com/2009/02/04/february-book-club/.

Michael Dubruiel's great book on the Mass moving up the charts at Amazon. I don't know where it was yesterday, but it's taken a huge jump already today as we all work together to support the family.

Danielle Bean has also established a support fund to a donation fun to help their children at her site: http://daniellebean.com/2009/02/04/please-help-spread-the-word/
