A few words on the passing of Fr. Paulus Blum SDS

I would like to write a few words here on the passing of Fr. Paulus Blum since unfortunately, no one from his Salvatorian Lay circle in Germany has done so so far. So I can only take some data from the official death letter and complete it with my own memories.

As a pastor, as a teacher, and as a musician, Fr. Paul proclaimed the Good News in such a way that it reached people in a wholesome way. For this, Fr. Paul worked and worked with all his strength. These words are to read at the beginning of the death announcing – an that is true.

I personally learned him to know about 30 years ago, first by exchanging letters and afterward by personal meetings. He was a kind of human who guided one soon into a comfortable and brotherly atmosphere, who tried to meet other ones on an equal level.

He was born in the area around the Bodensee and came there in contact with the Salvatorians, who attracted him to stay and become a priest. His big love was music and he studied it with graduation from the music academy of Stuttgart. Over a long time, he was a teacher for music and religion at the Gymnasium of Bad Wurzach. Through him, several generations of students have discovered music for themselves and have taken a serious look at the Christian faith. With the school choir, he set unforgettable musical highlights with musicals, singing plays, and church concerts. Until a year ago, Fr. Paul taught various instruments and especially the organ. Many women and men who play in the parishes Sunday after Sunday today not only learned the instrument from him but also found access to church music. Continue Reading

O Lord,
Risen, alive and full of grace.
You paid such a price that we may live in freedom today.
We worship your holy name and give thanks for your redeeming grace.

Heavenly Father,
May we drink in your tender love so that we can pour this love out to others.
Come reign in our hearts, minds, and spirits.

Holy Spirit,
We welcome you to blow through our every word, action, and thought.
Come transform us on the inside so that each day we become more like our risen Lord.

Amen.
