Verein BENEDIKT be-WEG-t Oberösterreich

Steinerkirchen an der Traun, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • Suitable for groups

The association aims at "the non-profit establishment, further development, maintenance and guidance of the Benedict Path as a pilgrimage route in Upper Austria".

Starting in Passau (Pauline monastery of Mariahilf) (or in the opposite direction), the spiritual path will connect the many living monasteries first along the Danube (Engelszell, Pupping, Wilhering), then Lambach, Steinerkirchen an der Traun, Kremsmünster and Schlierbach, to then connect to the already existing path in Spital am Pyhrn (former monastery). The monasteries and other places to stay offer many special features. An alternative or variant route also leads away from Bad Hall or Traun via St. Florian Abbey.

Activities for the Benediktweg, as well as other measures, are intended to underpin the attachment to the teachings of Saint Benedict. The association would like to support its members spiritually, culturally and organisationally in the spirit of the world of thought of the Benedictine Order and its monasteries. monasteries. Its activities are therefore in no way profit-oriented.

Benedict of Nursia (480 -547)

Benedict of Nursia, the father and (main) patron saint of Europe, is considered the founder of the monastic monasticism and the Benedictine Order. "Ora et labora et lege", these three aspects of life characterise the "school" of St. Benedict. Prayer and worship, work and continuous study of the biblical writings and those of the Church Fathers form a unity in the Benedictine understanding of life. Already in 2009, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the repopulation of the Benedictine monastery of St. Paul in the Lavant Valley, a pilgrimage path named after St. Benedict of Nursia was built on the path of the monks of that time. It is a path of encounter and movement in many ways: those who walk it should find peace and inner contemplation, experience community and hospitality, but also feel transformation and learn to perceive creation more consciously. The "Ursprungsweg" leads from Spital am Pyhrn to St. Paul im Lavanttal or in Lavanttal or in the opposite direction. In 2011 it was extended to Gornji Grad (Slovenia). By 2023 at the latest, the pilgrimage trail - as in Upper Austria - is to be completed throughout Slovenia. In cooperation with other pilgrimage paths in Italy, it should eventually be possible to walk the Benedict Path to Montecassino (central Italy), the mother monastery of the Benedictine Order and tomb of St. Benedict, or from there to the north - later to Pluscarden, the northernmost European (and Scottish) Benedictine monastery.
