Requiem in Pace, Paul!
This morning our Lord brought His servant Paul Steinmann through suffering and death with Him into the life that never ends. Steinmann - Rock Man. He was indeed a man who built his life upon the unshakeable Rock, our Lord Jesus Christ. It was beautiful as well as heart-rending to surround Paul's passing with the music of the Church. We sang him to sleep with Gloria in Excelsis, Agnus Dei, Nunc Dimittis, What a Friend, Just as I am, Hark the Herald, For all the Saints, The Lord's My Shepherd, Blest be the Tie, Lord Let at Last, and so many more. "And did not Jesus sing a hymn that night, when utmost evil strove against the light? Then let us sing for whom He won the fight! Alleluia!" Rest in peace, dear friend! We love you. "The Strife is O'er, the Battle Done."
