Solemn Vows at the Stift Heiligenkreuz in Austria

Just in time for the feast of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, our friend Sancrucensis has posted some photos of a ceremony of Solemn Profession of Vows recently held at his monastery, Stift Heiligenkreuz (the Abbey of the Holy Cross) in Austria, the oldest continuously occupied Cistercian house in the world. They are also quite well known for their very successful and well-regarding recording of Cistercian chants, Chant: Music for Paradise. The website of the abbey has several more photos available of the same ceremony. NLM is happy to offer our congratulations and best wishes to the whole community - ad multos annos!
