Archbishop Ranjith's visit to Austria

Recently, Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith -- secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship -- visited Austria to deliver a lecture at the invitation of the Department of Liturgical Studies at the University of Vienna. Msgr. Ranjith's lecture was upon "Liturgy: The Splendour of Heaven on Earth. Some Orientations and Challenges to Liturgy in the Present Times". In addition to Archbishop Ranjith, Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone, the Auxiliary Bishop of San Diego, was also present for the discussion that followed the lecture.

One of our readers was present and noted that the Archbishop Ranjith's lecture was both well attended and also very well received by those in attendance.

After his lecture, Archbishop Ranjith visited Heiligenkreuz Abbey where some of his fellow countrymen are present. Here are two photos from a visit of Archbishop Ranjith to the same Abbey from a couple of years ago:
