St. Oswald - Wells Chapel and Cloisterchurch

Wells Chapel:

In Sankt Oswald there is a rare natural wonders - a source rock. The "rich and tasty spring water from the rock" was also the reason why St. Oswald became a monastery and pilgrimage. Landgraf Johann I. of Leuchtenberg, the then ruler in woodland between Rachel and Lusen let build in 1389 on the source a chapel. 1396 he founded there a Cloister, which he put under the protection of the Holy Oswald.

Three monastic orders, the Paulines, the Augustinian canons and the Benedictines took care of 400 years to the salvation of the convent subjects. They cared for the pilgrims, the "healing and help" hoped for from the water source.

The monastery was constructed in 1803 dissolved. The pilgrimage has outlived the monastery end. A great day of pilgrimage is still the so-called "Garnsamstag", on Saturday before the Feast of the Ascension.

Pilgrimage: The "healing power of rock source" was once known far beyond Sankt Oswald out. The Bründl water helped, "weak and blind eyes", with "festering sores", with "gout symptoms" and "crippled and lame limbs". The water was also the health and welfare of livestock.

The Santa Oswalder strive for years to researching the monastery and pilgrimage history. Under the working title "Kloster idea" of the Museum Association has published a six-part series of publications on important issues of local and regional history and between Bründlkapelle and Waldgeschichtlichem Museum a pilgrimage was built. The way farmers have sought to create under the "theme Sermon" something "special and unique". The path consists of three parts: the Brunnenberg, a cross and a group of meditation on the beatitudes of the Sermon.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
