Traveling the Shrines of GermanyAncient Shrine of Our Lady of Altotting

The Lord gave us the beauty of a German winter as a backdrop to frame His beautiful shrines, first in Bavaria, possibly the most beautiful area blessed by God in the world, and then up through central Germany to a special shrine dedicated to the Miracle of the Eucharist at Walldurn.  The most descriptive word we can find is breathtaking.  When you think of snow-capped mountains and white silhouettes on trees and bushes, it just begins to convey the majesty of the shrines.

We were given permission to videotape three shrines in Germany, The Miracle of the Eucharist in Walldurn, the Miracle of the Eucharist in Erding, and the shrine to Our Lady of Altotting, near Munich.  This was being coupled with a Day of Recollection we were giving to the American Air Force at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. 

Our first stop was Munich.  Naturally, we arrived late.  Our host couple, Tro (Dimytro) and Kathleen Schabla had driven some six hours from Ramstein Air Force base, and  were waiting for us for quite a time.  Also, we had a three p.m. appointment with the custodian at Altotting, Fr. Furtner.  We arrived at Altottingat 2:45, completely exhausted, but not too tired to be completely enthralled by the beauty of the shrine and the town.  Again, breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind.  Or better, the glory of God.  God, the great artist, puts His majesty on earth through a shade of this color, a bold stroke of that, an inspiration in architecture that takes your breath away.  We were falling down on our feet, and all we wanted to do was to capture this magnificence on videotape.  But we did use prudence, and went to sleep for an hour.

The town is a storybook setting, with buildings like we would see in Grimm's Fairy Tales, or Pinocchio, Swiss-chalet style, with thatched roofs.  The rooms at the little hotel we stayed in were taken from what you would expect in the Tyrolean Alps.  It was so obvious that Our Lord Jesus had molded this place in special honor of His Mother, our Mother, Mary.

Altotting is one of the oldest Marian Shrines in Germany, and one of the most frequented by pilgrims.  The new custodian, only on duty for a little over a year at the shrine, Fr. Furtner, is a beautiful, rosy-cheeked outgoing priest, who has a great love for Our Lady, and has always revered this shrine to her.  We will tell you a little more about this shrine in another issue, and also on our video presentation, which will be part of our series, The Many Faces of Mary, which is shown every week on EWTN.  But suffice it to say that during the summertime, there are youth pilgrimages to Altotting where anywhere up to 8,000 young people come from the seat of the Diocese of Pasau, 83 kilometres (54 miles) on foot! 

The chapel in honor of Our Lady, where the image of Our Lady of Altotting stands, only holds 75 to 100 people, if you jam them in.  Our priest, Fr. Furtner, told us that last summer, as these thousands of youth descended on the little village shrine, he knew they would not all get to venerate the image of Our Lady.  So he went inside the church, and did something unheard of.  He took the statue of Our Lady out of the chapel, and kept it in the courtyard of the Shrine so that everyone would have an opportunity to visit with her.  The entire outside of the chapel is covered, on all walls, with paintings attesting to miracles through the intercession of Our Lady of Altotting.  These paintings go from the 17th Century, through World War II, to the present.  It doesn't stop.  It goes on.

Closer to Munich, actually on the other side, is the little town of Erding.  Again, it is something to behold.  You really have to understand something about the Bavarian area of Germany.  It has always been quaint villages, inhabited by very friendly, happy people.  It is the Germany of the Bruhaus (Beer Hall), that you still see during the Oktoberfest in Munich.

Dear Bob and Penny:

I never have expressed my love for people who go out of their way to bring Our Lord and His most holy Mother to so many people.
Bob and Penny, you both outdid the book on, “The Many Faces of Mary, Book II.”  I started to read this book on Saturday, October 18 and finished it on Wednesday, October 22.  I just did not put it down.  The more I read, the more I fell in love with Mary, the Mother of God.  In reading about Our Lady of Loreto, I remembered I had read that the Holy House of Loreto where Mary and Joseph raised the infant Jesus, was the very house in which Mary herself was raised.  Her parents Anna and Joachim had given the house to Mary.

The Many Faces of Mary - Book II
the love story continue
s

Our first book on Our Lady, The Many Faces of Mary, Book I, a love story, has been a best seller since we first published it in 1987. There is such a hunger to hear of Mary and how She helps us in miraculous ways, how She helps to mold and change history.

In this new book, The Many Faces of Mary, Book II, the love story continues...,we have an urgency to bring you Her most powerful messages. In this century, She has given us prophecies of things which have come about, as well as warnings about things that may happen in the future. She tells us that through prayer and the Rosary, the tide can turn on calamity. Justice and Peace can triumph. All of Her messages come down to that one command She gave us in Holy Scripture, "Do whatever He tells you!"

Come with us on this journey; join Mother Mary and us as we walk hand-in-hand with Her in Her apparitions, at Her shrines, Go to Jesus through Mary. the love story continues.....

Reader comments: Dear Bob and Penny:
I just purchased the book, “The Many Faces of Mary, a love story.” I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this book. I checked it out at the library and I had to order my own copy.  I want to read it over and over again. I want to keep it for my family and friends to read.
I found out about the book on our awesome Catholic station, EWTN.  I’m hooked on this television network.
I consider you and all the wonderful people on EWTN my teachers.  Since the Passion of the Christ movie I am yearning to learn as much as I can.
I will buy all your books.  They are such good and easy readings.  My relationship with our Blessed Mother is so much closer than ever before because of your book.
May God Bless you always and keep up the good work. 
Thanks for being two of my teachers.

Heavenly Army of Angels

"Suddenly, a Heavenly Army of  Angels was with the Angel, singing praises to God: Glory to God in the highest Heaven, and peace on Earth to men of good will." Luke 1:13-14

Bob and Penny Lord's book focuses on the great Army we have been given, the Heavenly Army of Angels, to give us strength and confidence that we are not alone, because of this exalted assembly of the Heavenly Hosts.  Their years of researching Shrines, have proven to be great assets in bringing you the Heavenly Army of Angels in the Old and New Testament, and in the history of our Church.

"Put on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the Principalities and the Powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness on high." (Eph 6:11-12)

If ever there was a need for Angels, it is in our present time. How can you call on someone you do not know?
Read about the Angels and their part in your life.
