"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Master of the spiritual life.

  1. His voice always perfectly fit that stereotype of the tough old priest who won't take no crap from nobody, but with a heart of pure gold.

    May he rest in peace.

  2. Amen.
    A great servant of the Lord, a holy priest and wonderful master of the spiritual life. He has made an incredible contribution to living authentic Catholic spiritual life for countless priests, consecrated and lay faithful.
    Thank you, Fr. Dubay. May the angels lead you into Paradise!

  3. I gave him a ride once - while he was staying at the Church of St. Louis in downtown St. Paul. Quite a priest.

  5. I have a couple books of his. The Church Militant has lost a good leader - may the angels welcome him into the Church Triumphant.

  6. Wasn't he originally from Minnesota? Did he have a brother who was a priest also?

    I can't find much about him on the internet. I guess that goes with poverty, chastity and obedience.
