Westside Paulist RIP

Westside Paulist, one of our blogger friends, went home to God yesterday...after battling a long illness. Fr. Michael Hunt, CSP--an outstanding man and Paulist Priest--was a wonderful man. Because of him, I have a book about to go to press next fall...he edited the first manuscript along with a strongly worded letter to the President at Paulist Press to publish it.

Fr. Michael appreciated all the prayers people sent his way. He lived with a grace that few could ever capture. Please keep his family in your prayers--especially his sister, Ann and his brother, David --as well as his Paulist family at 59th Street...where his voice rang through the common room always with strong wit and intelligence.

I am a better man for having known him.

Every day I go to Fr. Michael's blog and the May 12th post remains the last one. At each visit I pray for him and send him my very best thoughts. Something (now I believe it was the Holy Spirit) prompted me to visit your blog again today and now I've learned of Father Michael's homegoing.

Thank you for sharing the news. If you can, please let us know the details of his homegoing services.

Peace, and condolences!
