Saxony: Pilgrimages instead of an outdoor pool: children's pilgrimage of the Dresden diocese

Rosenthal (dpa/sn) - After the corona-related digital edition in 2020, young Catholics can meet live again this year for the big children's diocese pilgrimage. The ordinariate of the Diocese of Dresden-Meißen expects around 800 girls and boys between the ages of 8 and 16 to come to the Rosenthal pilgrimage church (Bautzen district) from the Saxon parishes on Wednesday. Since it's supposed to be hot, it will be different than usual "probably not a lot of running," said a spokesman. One is prepared for the heat, there are trees and bushes that provide shade, drinks and water sprinklers. Paramedics are there in case of an emergency.

Under the motto "Is it still possible? (Over)life on earth", the focus should be on "one of the most urgent problems of our time", said Bishop Heinrich Timmerevers. "It must be a basic duty for all people to preserve and preserve what God has given us." It is "a very hopeful sign that many young people in particular are campaigning for this topic".

The village of Rosenthal in Sorbian Lusatia is one of the most important places of pilgrimage for the Catholic Church in the Free State. A painted figure of Mary made of linden wood from the 15th century is venerated there, the "Mother of God of the Linde", to which Christians from near and far make a pilgrimage every year.

The children's pilgrimage traditionally takes place every two years. Young Christians walk the last stretch to the pilgrimage church on pilgrimage paths in the morning. After the central service and a picnic together on the meadow behind the church, they can be creative, sporty or intellectually active. This time flowerpots are painted, forest and nature explored and there is a live football game - the players stand on poles like the figures in the machines.
