Dreistetten (Austria) -- Priests' Meeting in Tagungshaus Hohewand

The yearly conference for priests and seminarians organized by Hohewand Conference Center in Dreistetten, Lower Austria, was held on May 28-29. The theme of the conference was “Benedict XVI: his life, theology, and pontificate.” This topic reflected the approaching visit of the Pope to Austria in September on the occasion of the 850th anniversary of the Shrine of Mariazell.

On Tuesday the 29th, Opus Dei’s Regional Vicar for Austria, Msgr. Martin Schlag, spoke about the theological itinerary of Josef Ratzinger. Later, Auxiliary Bishop Franz Lackner of Graz, explained the significance of the Holy Father’s visit to Mariazell in September.

The conference was an opportunity to penetrate more deeply into the teachings of the Pope and to prepare spiritually for his upcoming visit.
