Passion Sunday Pilgrimage

We set out with a group of about 10 others to walk from Trumau to Stift Heiligenkreuz, a medieval Cistercian monastery about 20km away. We were rather too busy huffing and puffing to take any pictures ourselves, but here is one of our destination:

The monastery is home to the largest relic of the true Cross north of the Alps, and the monks were kind enough to expose it for our veneration at the end of our pilgrimage.

Nice morning walk! Twenty kilometers ... that's about twelve and a half miles in real surface measurement units. And a beautiful destination it is, inside and out from what I can see. You'll have to take us for a visit the next time we're in Austria.
