Pictures from Austria

It's been awhile since I've posted pictures of our surroundings here in Austria. Yesterday my wife and daughter and I climbed Kalvarienberg (Calvary Mountain), which is right across the road from the Kartause Maria Thron (the one-time Carthusian monastery turned theological institute). There is a via crucis up one side of the mountain (really more of a hill in comparison to the big Alps).

Speaking of the Kartause Maria Thron (pictured above) and the International Theological Institute (where I am studying), Gerald Augustinus over at the Cafeteria Is Closed has a great post up about Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn's efforts to promote the ITI. Check it out here. Gerald even has some great pictures of two of the excellant Byzantine priests who serve the Eastern Rite Catholics here.
