The other chapel was in honor of Mary. It was a very simple chapel with a beautiful painting of Our Lady hanging on the front wall. Two German ladies, one elderly and one very young, were softly praying the Rosary together. Though we cannot speak German, Dan and I quietly prayed the Hail Mary with them in English. We were able to pick out enough of their words to match their German with our English. What a beautiful reminder of our universal Church! Both Dan and I have German grandparents, so it was incredible to listen to the words of the Rosary in German and know that our ancestors spoke those same words in prayer!
After our visit to Saint Matthias' Abbey, we explored a little more of the charming town of Trier. We stumbled upon several other churches and then found ourselves in a quaint, beautiful town square. I could've spent a whole day in this square, shopping in the colorful, trendy shops, tasting coffee and patries at the adorable cafes, and taking in all of the sights and sounds. It was lovely.
