Notes for Sunday 5 May 2024

Dear friends,

Our travels have taken us across Austria and we are now in the Czech republic.

On our way we visited the heroes organ in Kufstein. Every day at 12 noon there is a 15 minute recital for the fallen of all wars world-wide. The way this organ is built, ensures it can be heard for miles around. Kufstein is on the northern border of Tirol. On the southern border, in Italy, the largest bell in the world is rung every day for world peace. The inscription of this bell is in the second picture and translates as: ‘Nothing can be lost through peace. Everything can be lost through war.’
I leave you with these wise words from pope Pius XII.

God bless,

Dineke van den Bogerd
