A new newspaper article about Eisbergen monastery:
http://minden-kurier.de/2014/10/24/im-kleinsten-kloster-deutschlands-ist-jeder-als-gast-willkommen/

Quote
In unserem Kloster sind alle Menschen willkommen. (= In our monastery everybody is welcome.)

Quote
„Wir haben die Aufgabe in einer pluralistischen Gesellschaft den ursprünglichen Glauben zu bewahren und wollen ein Segen für unsere Umgebung zu sein.“ (= We have the task in a pluralistic society to preserve the original faith and we like to be a blessing for our environment.)

with some pictures:

"Years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth.... While there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free." (Eugene Debs)
