Neuler-Schwenningen. The community celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Schwenningen Blood Ride tradition with a village festival, the highlight of which was the equestrian parade on White Monday mornings. In front of the Heilig-Blut-Kapelle (Church of the Holy Blood) in the center of the village, participating knights from the area’s friendly riding clubs received their first blessing on horseback at the equestrian mass.

With ammo, blood rider, and priest Sven van Meigen, the retinue set out to fulfill his promise to ride through the fields and meadows. In the past two years, because of the situation, only a small delegation of horsemen have been able to carry out the procession through Schöningen, Neuller, Espschweiler and Schreisheim, and this year, about 100 horses have been released. The procession stopped at roadside crosses and churches and Reverend van Meijn gave the blessing.

A particularly ideal place to pray is the “To the Mother of Good Advice” chapel above Adlersteige. Here everyone prayed for those who are engaged in politics and life. “The way you participate in life, it will come back to you,” Meegen said.

While some were leisurely walking in the fields, Reverend Jürgen Zorn celebrated with a prayer in front of the Church of the Holy Blood in Schöningen. An astonishing number of believers gathered to celebrate the Eucharist in the open air. It is a very festive moment every year when Neuller’s music club and delegations march the city’s flag, alongside political celebrities such as Mayor Sabine Heydrich, Bundestag Rodrich Kiswetter, Bundestag Winfried Mack or former mayor Manfred Fischer. The town to the place of the pond. Since this year there are no about 200 riders and horses in the arena, as in the past one can enjoy a far view of Ellwangen Castle, Schönenberg Church and Hohenberger Church due to the manageable number.

Speaking to the Knights, Mayor Sabine Heydrich said: “It’s really good that we can celebrate again after two years.” It is especially important in times like these to look at our fellow human beings, such as refugees, for whom humanity is in dire need.

She thanked the village community of Schöningen for organizing Pfingstwiesen, Ludwig Wagner for organizing and the parish of Norbert Pfizer.

MdL Winfried Mack said that Schwenningen differs from London in its festivities in that the number of guests is greater than the population and that it has been possible to celebrate since 1947. Freedom is the foundation on which we live. It is absolutely necessary to reaffirm this.

Mac wished “good luck” to Pfingstwiesen’s future course. The riders and guests gave the last blessing to Reverend Jürgen Zorn.
