And while we once are tired, then a light is turned off for us, O God, in your goodness, and then we will find home (From the song Wir sind nur Gast auf Erden).

On the morning of 30 January 2019, Brother Dominikus (Ludwig) Hoferer OSB went home from the monastery of Neresheim to be with the Lord.  He was born on 15 January 1936 in Walldürn, Germany and made his monastic profession on 8 September 1956.  May he rest in the peace of our risen Christ!

The Requiem Mass was held in the abbey church on Saturday, 2 February 2019 at 2.00 p.m., followed by burial in the monastery cemetery.
