Maria Langegg, Austria
In the heart of the “Dunkelsteinerwald” and above the Valleys of the Danube on the famous “Camino de Santiago”, the road leading to Santiago de Compostella in Spain, lies Maria Langegg, home to the shrine of Our Lady “Health of the Sick.” For over four centuries people have received consolation and help through the intercession of the Mother of God in this holy place.
The Community of the Beatitudes arrived in in Maria Langegg, establishing its first Austrian foundation in 1993.
Since 2007 the brothers and sister oversee the shrine and its parish. Here pilgrims and wanderers find lodging for the night. The Community of the Beatitudes offers days of recollection, evenings of healing prayer, seminars on Christian faith, offers silent retreats for individuals and publishes a monthly magazine “Feuer und Licht” (“Fire and Light”). Individuals may request to spend days in silence in our house or to visit and share in the life of the community. Come and see!
