Father Konrad Fuchs, the oldest living Catholic priest, has died. He survived the trenches of the Great War, defied the Nazis, and lived to say Mass on his 109th birthday. He called our Holy Father’s election a “joy for Germany” and, in his last year, expressed regret that he could no longer see well enough “to read the Bible from beginning to end ‘one last time.'” To his parishioners, he was “a down-to-earth, deeply religious clergyman, [who] cited as his great passions the liturgy, especially choral music.” Requiescat in pace.
