    It is one of the greatest blessings of my life to have discovered Fr. Mike, first at St. Olaf in downtown Minneapolis, and then at the amazing parish of St. Cecilia's in St. Paul. He had amazing gifts - of liturgical celebration, of preaching, of pastoral care - and he was tireless in sharing those gifts with his communities. A friend from St C's called me on Friday to tell me immediately after it happened, and I have not stopped mourning since. May he rest and rejoice in the God whom he never ceased to preach and serve.
