Ember Friday in September

We beseech Thee, O almighty God, grant that, as year by year we devoutly keep these sacred fasts, we may please Thee both in body and mind. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day today! After John came home from his lecture, we took a long walk through Gaming. The trees on the mountains are changing colors, our view was absolutely breathtaking, the pictures below do not come close to doing it justice.

There are small shrines all throughout the Austrian countryside. We came across this one on our walk, a plaque read "Anno 1450."
