"Father Schurhammer was an authority on the History of the Far East, and particularly familiar with Francis Xavier's life and work. Schurhammer was born in Germany in 1882 in Glottertal, near Freiburg. In 1903 he entered in the Feldkirch Stella Matutina (Austria) school of the Society of Jesus. Already shortly after his entering he volunteered for the mission in India. In 1908 he was destined for Bombay. As a teacher he met with many religions and nations. That early contact with people of other religions and races, languages and cultures widened his horizon. After four years of engaged work he came close to a nervous breakdown. On advice of his physicians he returned to his homeland. At that time he promised God: 'If I should recover again and get the ordination, I will write a large Xavier biography.' During his theological studies in Valkenburg he was ordained priest in 1914. From 1916 on he was a permanent co-worker of the magazine 'Katholische Missionen' in Bonn.

In 1925 he was invited by Rome to take part in a mission congress. There he made a large contribution, by convincing the missionary experts that thorough acquisition of language and culture are essential for the work in the missions. From then on the future missionaries were already after the noviciate, at the earliest possible opportunity, sent into the mission. In the year 1932 Father

Schurhammer was called by Father Ledochowski for the second time to Rome. Now, however, to stay there and to dedicate himself to Francis Xavier's life. In 1952 he travelled as personal representative of the Pope, on occasion of the 400 anniversary of Xavier's death, to Goa and Xavier's grave in Sancian, China. In 1956/57 he traveled on Xavier's traces to Japan and India.

In 1962, on the occasion of his eightieth birthday, many essays about him appeared. He got the Federal Distinguished Service Cross and the University of Freiburg gave him the honorary doctor. The many acknowledgments of his life's work filled his heart with gratitude."
