WRITER PAULO COELHO APPEARS EXCITED ABOUT JERUSALEM WAY!
(June 30, 2013) The Jerusalem pilgrims and the literary star met each other in a small Spanish village. What an incredible and wonderful providence: The St. James Way encounters the Jerusalem Way!
Coelho appeared to be enthused and recognized the dimension of the Jerusalem Way as a worldwide peace project. In Jerusalem, the city of peace, there is no peace! Therefore, each single pilgrim makes an important contribution to peace in the Holy Land and, at the same time, Jerusalem is the Gordian knot for peace in the world… Because what separates religions and peoples can only be reunited by we people through love!

Audience with Pope Benedict XVI.
In the scope of the papal general audience in Rome on January 25, 2012, David Zwilling, Otto Klär and Johannes Aschauer presented their book Auf dem Jerusalemweg - Aus dem Herzen Europas zu Fuß nach Jerusalem to Pope Benedict XVI in the presence of Austrian Cardinal Christoph Schönborn.
Following their 6-month pilgrimage and the arrival in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve 2010 after having walked around 4,500 kilometers (2,967 miles), this was another very special and extraordinary highlight of the pilgrim and life journeys for the three Jerusalem pilgrims! Particularly also because their “pilgrimage to connect peoples” followed the traces of the apostle Paul, on the one hand, and stood under the interfaith motto of “JOY – PEACE – FREEDOM,” on the other hand.
INTERNATIONAL PEACE PROJECT FOR SYRIA!
VIPs from politics, religion, sports and society support the peace project founded by the „Jerusalem Way Peace Team“!
In 2010 the policemen Johannes Aschauer and Otto Klär made a pilgrimage with the former world downhill skiing champion David Zwilling in 2010, more than 4,500 km on foot from Austria to Jerusalem, where they arrived after six months. Back then, the long pilgrimage led them for a month through still peaceful Syria, where they visited historical cities such as Damascus and Aleppo, which today are fiercely fought over and heavily damaged.
Now the trio has started an international peace project with the support of numerous personalities such as Cardinal Schönborn, Bishop Schwarz, Vice-President of the European Parliament Karas, Member of the European Parliament Karas, Vice Chancellor Spindelegger, Reinhold Lopatka, Interior Minister Mikl-Leitner, Governor Pröll, Governor Pühringer, Governor Haslauer, Sport Stars like Franz Klammer, Annemarie Moser-Pröll, Hansi Hinterseer and Alexandra Meisnitzer, … which aims to draw attention to the current situation in Syria.
In this project, the international community is called upon to speak out for peace in this region. A brief peace video, which arose during their one-month journey through Syria, is a prelude to the project.
The initiator Johannes Aschauer, both of his fellow pilgrims, and the “Jerusalem Way Peace Team” founded by him, wish that this message of peace will be spread worldwide in order to encourage as many people as possible to join this peace project. At the same time, further actions for peace in the region are to be carried out: On November 28th, 2013 will start a one week peace march in Austria from Salzburg via Linz and Mauthausen concentration camp to Arbing on the Jerusalem Way. Planned arrival is on December 5th (Approximate Distance 180 km / 112 miles).
The climax of the peace project will be, as soon as the situation allows it, a peace march with international participation from Damascus through Syria, into the Holy Land to Jerusalem.
Please support our peace project, forward this information to your contacts and share the video on the web. Peace concerns everyone!
