Prayers for Michael Dubruiel Thursday, Feb 5 2009 

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Michael Dubruiel who died suddlenly on February 3rd. Please keep Amy and their children and his family in your prayers.

This is from Amy's blog.

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.

Here is a list Michael's books:

O Little Flower of Jesus, ask God today to grant the favors I now place with confidence in your hands ….. (Mention specific requests) St. Thérèse, help me to always believe as you did, in God’s great love for me, so that I might imitate your “Little Way” each day. Amen

Miscarriage prayer

My Lord, the baby is dead!

Why, my Lord—dare I ask why? It will not hear the whisper of the wind or see the beauty of its parents’ face—it will not see the beauty of Your creation or the flame of a sunrise. Why, my Lord?

“Why, My child—do you ask ‘why’? Well, I will tell you why.

You see, the child lives. Instead of the wind he hears the sound of angels singing before My throne. Instead of the beauty that passes he sees everlasting Beauty—he sees My face. He was created and lived a short time so the image of his parents imprinted on his face may stand before Me as their personal intercessor. He knows secrets of heaven unknown to men on earth. He laughs with a special joy that only the innocent possess. My ways are not the ways of man. I create for My Kingdom and each creature fills a place in that Kingdom that could not be filled by another. He was created for My joy and his parents’ merits. He has never seen pain or sin. He has never felt hunger or pain. I breathed a soul into a seed, made it grow and called it forth.”

I am humbled before you, my Lord, for questioning Your wisdom, goodness, and love. I speak as a fool—forgive me. I acknowledge Your sovereign rights over life and death. I thank You for the life that began for so short a time to enjoy so long an Eternity.                                                                                              —  Mother M. Angelica

I will be meditating on this today Tuesday, May 13 2008 

While praying the rosary for a special intention this morning, I read this quote from Sermon in a Sentence: A Treasury of Quotes on the Spiritual Life from St. Therese of Lisieux:

I am not going to worry, but I will always stretch out my suppliant arms towards You with great love. I cannot believe that You would abandon me.- St. Therese of Lisieux

Please storm Heaven Sunday, Feb 24 2008 

This little girl needs a miracle.
