The parish community was very sad when their old missionary priest died. Having come from Germany he had served them, inspired and helped them in many ways for more than 40 years. At his Requiem Mass the catechists paid a tribute to him and his work for more than 3 generations of families.
“On some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder because of the grace given me by God to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel. So that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.”
Pope Francis: From the heart of the Gospel we see the profound connection between evangelization and human advancement which must be expressed and developed in every work of evangelization. EG 178
