With the passing away of Fr. Paul Puthanangady SDB this morning, 14 November, a great luminary has gone away from our midst. However the rays of light he shed during his life time will continue to illumine many for a long time to come. Fr. Puthanangady, aged 79, succumbed to cancer from which he had been suffering for quite many years, at Don Bosco Aluva, Kerala. His health condition had taken a sudden dip in the past couple of weeks, and he was administered the anointing of the sick in the presence of a large number of his confreres and many of his relations, at the studentate of Philosophy in Aluva. He passed away in the Golden jubilee year of his priestly Ordination. Fr. Puthanangady had selflessly devoted several decades of his life to theology and liturgy as a scholar, a professor, a formator and a leader. It can rightly be said that his contributions to theological reflection in general and liturgical renewal in India in particular is unparalleled. His evident achievements are bound to influence several generations of people. . Read More

How do you define a person who is a writer, orator, liturgist, preacher, teacher, author, ecclesiastical activist, argumentator, organizer and theologian? Such complex personality was St. Paul. Perhaps, Fr. Paul resembles his patron saint in every way! Fr. Paul Puthanangady, SDB, an authority on liturgy, could command, demand and reprimand the Indian Ecclesiastical authorities if anything is related to liturgy. This Liturgical Thunder has now entered into liturgical silence today. We take a look into his personality from his contemporaries who have seen him, heard him and lived with him. . Read More
