House of Stillness, Steyr, Austria


A group gives a dry run for their new song book, You with us (does that mean God, or you are welcome at our retreat centre. Always difficult to know with modern self-obsessed spirituality).

The book contains almost no songs of repentance or conversion and you will have to look very hard for a song honouring Mary.

Celebrating 20 Years of the Day of Prayer for World Peace in the same place. Can anyone locate the Cross, our only hope?

In a similar outfit in Regensburg, they have given up the Cross entirely.
Can anyone locate the Cross, our only hope.

They say it is based on the meditation image of Brother Klaus. But who is going to know that? Most will think it is a symbol for pagan mediatation. The tabernacle looks as if it is part of the engine room of Star Trek, not the Holy of Holies.

This is the "corporate logo" for the organisation linking together Spiritual Exercise Centres in Germany and Austria. Worryingly, much more labyrinth than Cross.

First let me say thanks for your website - please keep up the good work!

Thought I'd let you know about our recent post on the wreckovation at the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky.

Actually, it looks like an ad for pagan refrigeration. What is that box on the brochure?

Thank you for your website. Interesting reading!
