Pilgrimage Church of Maria Neustift

Maria Neustift, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • All weather
  • Suitable for groups

Maria Neustift is a place to pause. Visiting the pilgrimage church and quietly encountering oneself and contemplating the almost life-size statue of Our Lady from 1450, one feels that the impossible seems possible.

The pilgrimage church is dedicated to the" Blessed Virgin Mary, Saviour of the Sick". Mary at the high altar is also the most venerated at present. The numerous votive tablets in the old presbytery are manifold signs of the trust and gratitude of the pious devotees of Mary.

The altar niche contains a life-size statue of Mary with the Child Jesus (Gothic), surrounded by a graceful halo of rays and a lively circle of angels. Two floating angels hold a crown over Mary. The banner reads: "Holy Mary, mother of beautiful love and holy hope, you salvation of the sick in Neustift pray for us".

Above the altar niche are two angelic figures, above the column capitals on the Evangelist side St. Benedict, on the Epistle side St. Berthold. St. Florian and St. George guard the sanctuary.
