About Schütz

I am Catholic, married to Cathy, father of Maddy & Mia. Since 2002, I have been the Executive Officer of the Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. I was once a Lutheran pastor, but a "year of grace" and soul-searching led me into the Catholic Church. It was a bumpy ride, but with the support of my (still Lutheran) wife, I was finally confirmed on June 16, 2003.

    Christopher Wills and English biologist,in his book BLACK GODDESS YELLOW FEVER went to india after the last outbreak of Bubonic plague there and in interviewing many of the doctors involved came across several who doubted that it was the PLAGUE. However he noted that there was reports of dead rats and cats -often a sign of plague.
