A group of the Lay Salvatorians in Austria met last Saturday for a spiritual walk through the landscape in the northeast of Austria. The start and endpoint was the little local church of Gaubitsch, the eldest in the surrounding with roots back to 1055.
With a prayer and a song, we started our walk. Seven stations invited us with text from the Holy Scripture to reflect a little bit on our personal path in life. The walk was a wonderful recreation after the last years affected by the CoVid-pandemic. Even if not all exchanges we can describe as “Holy words” there was to feel the Holy Spirit as a companion and opened again our common engagement in the Lay Salvatorian community. In our thought and prayers, we tried to take all the members of the Salvatorian family with us in this way and express our unity.
With thankfulness, we will think about this day for a long time, and may it inspire our acting in the coming future.
PS: We would appreciate reading about similar actions from other units because we recognized during the walking on our path that the communication between us in the international community needs an improvement again. So maybe you can see these lines as an invitation … Your comments and ideas are very welcome …
