Prayers and Texts for the Spiritual Life

Under „Spirituality“ we offer German translations of hymns and prayers, also for use in personal prayer:


An archive of Russian and other musical compositions and pieces in German is in the process of being compiled.

The introduction to the Prayer of the Heart (Jesus Prayer) is no substitute for the personal guidance of a spiritual director.

The Fathers of the Church set a standard as teachers and leaders of the ancient Church in close connection with the New Testament and the Apostles. They are our Fathers in the Faith and immediate witnesses of the normative tradition of the Faith, which formed the canon of the New Testament and its authentic interpretation.

And finally on the German pages there are also homilies of the monks of Niederaltaich and Seminars offered at the monastery (all in the German language).
