Mother Paula – Our Spiritual Mother

On 6 August 1938 Pau­la Boden­mann first saw the light of day. In Martisberg/VS (Switz­er­land) stood her crad­le. Josef, her father, and Helen, her mother, were moun­tain far­mers and model par­ents. Pau­la grew up with eight bro­thers and sis­ters, of whom she was the fourth. She was a very cheer­ful girl, who real­ly enjoy­ed life, though being shy and reser­ved. At a very ear­ly age she had to take respon­si­bi­li­ty.

Mother Pau­la

At the age of 13 she lost her mother, who died at the birth of her ninth child due to heart fail­u­re. Tog­e­ther with her one-year-older sis­ter she took over many duties of a mother.

After ele­men­ta­ry school she atten­ded a domestic sci­ence school for two years and later she spent a year lear­ning how to keep house with a kind dentist’s fami­ly in Chur (Switz­er­land).

With con­si­derable preli­mi­na­ry work expe­ri­ence in home nur­sing and in a hos­pi­tal she com­ple­ted nur­sing school in Bern (Switz­er­land) suc­cess­ful­ly.

Her joie de viv­re and enjoy­ment of life did not pre­vent her from fol­lowing the strai­ght and nar­row.

After many working years she mar­ried on 5 June 1965 Niko­laus Schnei­der from Oberriet/SG (Switz­er­land), with whom she lived in per­fect har­mo­ny. She beca­me a mother of four sons, to whom she gave her who­le heart.

In March 1975 her hus­band recei­ved from GOD the mis­si­on to uncon­di­tio­nal­ly offer his ser­vices to GOD and the Church. Drasti­cal­ly and pro­found­ly GOD inter­ven­ed in their fami­ly.

In June 1977, with a hea­vy heart, she vol­un­ta­ri­ly gave up her hus­band for the priest­hood.

While she con­ti­nued to take care of their child­ren, she nevertheless also sup­por­ted her hus­band, the Sword-Bishop, in his dif­fi­cult cal­ling as GOD’s Instru­ment.

She was appoin­ted as spi­ri­tu­al Mother and GOD deemed her worthy of impar­ting the bles­sing of St. Joseph. In the year 2010, she foun­ded the “Lay Com­mu­ni­ty of St. Joseph” to the grea­ter venera­ti­on of the Nur­sing and Fos­ter Father of JESUS CHRIST. For more infor­ma­ti­on, see under:

Thus she shares her life with her hus­band, child­ren and many spi­ri­tu­al child­ren.
