Pilgrimage: On Foot From Liechtenstein to the Far East
Chaplain Johannes Maria Schwarz will take a pilgrimage to Haran (Abraham) starting in May.
Linz (kath.net) He has already had experiences with long pilgrimages for a long time. As a seminarian Johannes Maria Schwarz, co-founder of kath.net, went from Linz to Santiago de Composetela. Now he is planning to take a sabbatical year as chaplain in May and would like to do, what apparently still no one has done before.
From May Johannes Maria will make a mega-pilgrimage all the way to Haran, the city of Abraham in southeast Turkey. The road there will also go through Slovakia, Ukraine and Romania, from there over Moldova, back to Ukraine and then to Russia. Georgia and Armenia are on the travel plan.
He understands the trip as a pilgrimage and is an investment “in every time of quiet and prayer”, explained Schwarz.
Chaplain Dr. Johannes Maria Schwarz is a priest of the Archdiocese of Vaduz. He is active as a guest professor at the International Theological Institute in Trumau (Grand Chancellor Christoph Cardinal Schönborn).
