To life

Marpod house number 111, you carefully open the green, old Saxon courtyard door, because behind it two black and white spotted dogs with wagging tails are waiting: Buli and Simsalabim. There is a lot of activity in the courtyard, a village within a village. There is pottery, music, cooking and praying together. The home of Ruth Zenkert and Father Georg Sporschill becomes a center for exchange, regeneration and the creation of strength. For the residents of the "comunitate" the morning prayer, long walks and encounters with interested visitors strengthen the feeling of being part of a large family. Be it Roma children, Jesuits, young volunteers or animals.

The court was therefore baptized “Le Chaim”, translated from Hebrew it means “To life”. Because it is confirmed every day that it is a source of life, a place of arrival and security.
