Memories Timeline


  1. We at St. Anthony’s Dining Room, here in the City of Saint Francis (California) were privileged to have Michael alongside us, leading and inspiring us, and taking great delight in putting out a really good meal for our poor and homeless neighbors. I choose to believe that he is already busy at work, perhaps alongside Francis and Clare, preparing and serving the Heavenly Banquet.


  2. Peace be with you, dear friend. May love and light be forever in your heart.
