Silent place of worship

Silent place of worship

Many believers from mistendorf, zeegendorf, tiefenhochstadt, hochstall, kalberberg and other communities in the vicinity have marched every year on the feast of the birth of mary from the parish church in mistendorf to the chapel on the steinknock, singing and praying. Accompanied by the church flags, various holy figures, the church music and numerous club delegations, the blessed sacrament is carried in the monstrance by the priest to the lady chapel on the steinknock.

To the great joy of the faithful, archbishop ludwig schick took over this task in 2009. For more than 30 years even believers from hof came to the procession in mistendorf.

The sacramental procession takes place in commemoration of the consecration of the chapel on 8. September 1895. The steinknock and the procession are closely linked to the life and work of pastor otto wohlleber, the last pastor of mistendorf, who died in 2017.

New fdp turmoil ahead of triennial

New fdp turmoil ahead of triennial

Doring rejected the accusation that he had accused his predecessor christian lindner of a coup attempt. In a letter to the parliamentary group and the federal executive committee, which was made available to the news agency dpa, doring explained that his statements had been taken completely out of context. He asked for apologies for any irritation that may have arisen.

In FDP circles, the incident was judged to be unhelpful ahead of the important party meetings in stuttgart. There, rosler, who is under pressure, will try to show the party a way out of the crisis in a speech lasting just under an hour on friday. The FDP remains at a polling low: in the new election trend from "stern" and RTL, it comes in at only three percent.

According to "stern," doring is said to have accused lindner of resigning from the office of secretary general only in order to be able to become FDP leader himself. "He believed that the situation (…) is so unstable that philipp rosler has to resign and that the party will then call him, the coarse intellectual."

relaxedness as wm recipe - popp: 'i am very relaxed'

Alexandra popp is not yet nervous about the project. Even three days before the opening match at the women’s soccer world championship against china, the german captain seems extremely relaxed and confident.

"Of course it is a great honor for me to lead the team onto the field as captain for the first time at a world cup. But I’m still very relaxed, the tingling will probably come on friday evening when you go to bed," said the 28-year-old attacker from double winners vfl wolfsburg, looking ahead to the first game of the DFB-elf on saturday (15.00 o’clock/ARD and DAZN) in rennes against the asian women.

At the home tournament in 2011 and the world championships four years ago in canada, the own expectations and the public demands on the two-time world and eight-time european champion, who is accustomed to success, were much higher, explained popp on wednesday. "Because everyone said beforehand that germany would be world champions anyway. We don’t have that pressure now."
