John Paul II. And John xxiii. Are canonized

A few days ago, the cardinals’ meeting of the competent congregation of the vatican had already approved johannes paul II. A second miracle granted – prerequisite for canonization.

Lebenshilfe celebrates topping-out ceremony in hammelburg's old town

When elmar metz moves from wurzburger strabe to seelhausgasse, he won't have so far to go to the butcher's and to church. He will therefore be happy to live in the new home, said metz, who works in the hammelburg lebenshilfe workshop.

The location in the city center is also the decisive advantage of the new building for karl-heinz maul. "People with disabilities should not live on the outskirts, but in the center of town", said the chairman of lebenshilfe hammelburg at the topping-out ceremony. The seelhausgasse was chosen with care. The "seelhaus", which was built more than 200 years ago, was also a social institution. The shell of the new lebenshilfe home now stands on its site. The investment, including the purchase of the land, is estimated by lebenshilfe at around 3.3 million euros. The district and the government demand construction. Lebenshilfe has to bear around 30 percent of the costs according to the figures.

Euro-protest: unwanted protection for free voters

Party leader hubert aiwanger wants to mobilize a coalition of left-wing and conservative parties against the euro bailout and thus pave the way for the free voters, who have so far been successful mainly in bavaria, to enter the bundestag. The first major rally against the ESM bailout is planned for this saturday in munich. The fact that the NPD also wants to get involved is met with reluctance.

The free voters are primarily a force in local politics; so far they have only been elected to the state parliament in bavaria. Where else they contested state elections, they fell far short of the five-percent hurdle. Nevertheless, national chairman aiwanger wants to lead the grouping into federal and european politics – as a civic alternative to the union and FDP. A federal members’ meeting on 16. June in the bavarian geiselwind is considered a matter of form on this way.

Hallerndorf messages from the beyond

In the current play of the hallerndorfer theater group, the actual star is not on stage at all. That's because pastor matthias steffel has slipped into a very special guest role. As a long gone uncle, he recorded his will on video.

In his message, which is presented on a canvas, he addresses the heirs-to-be. All of whom, of course, are already greedily eyeing the inheritance – and whose more than dubious character traits the dead man, of course, knew only too well during his lifetime. His last will and testament turns out to be a will in the literal sense – because there is no inheritance to distribute.

Work on the new bridge at the western entrance to the town, near the pommersfelden parish hall, has recently begun. In a report from 2017, the bridge over the rich ebrach was described as "dilapidated" has been classified. The bridge was designed for a load-bearing capacity of twelve tons, a value that is no longer appropriate for today’s traffic conditions.
