Regards to all who venerate and invoke St. Benedict as well as prayer request for the future of the abbey of which I am an oblate: http://kloster-rohr.de

They're suffering from a shortage of vocations...it's a monastic community dating back to the 1100s. For centuries it was an Augustinian Canonry; suppressed by Napoleon in 1803, it was revived by Sudenten ethnic German monks expelled from Czechoslovakia following WW2 and re-established as a Benedictine abbey in 1947. The monks engage in pasotal work and teaching at their gymnasium.
