VIDEO: The Holy Cross at Heiligenkreuz Abbey near Vienna, Austria
This was recorded at Heiligenkreuz Abbey an hour south of Vienna, Austria. The ancient monastery was overflowing with new young vocations, a very lively lay presence who prayed with them during many of the hours, even the Vigils at 5:15 am. They are a very powerful leaven in the surrounding community, who attend their Masses in Latin (Ordinary Form in community) and in German (in the shrine). The abbey has been visited by the Holy Father, Blessed Mother Teresa, and quite obviously the frequent visit from the Divine Spirit that enlivens all those who desire to follow him.
