- 25 - As we walked on we came to a side chapel. Therein was an old image of Mary made from wood, it had stood in a monastery in the early centuries whose ruins were still somewhere nearby. “He said: “Long suffering spirit that are banned within the ruins down in the valley have been looking for this image for a long time.” Being quite astonished I asked him: “Why have these spirits been looking for this image for such a long time? It is surely quite easy to find it here. And besides, of what us could this image be to these suffering spirits?” “You do not understand this? Well, I will explain it to you. The spirits that have been banned to some place or other for their misdeeds may not venture beyond the specific area they have been banned to. This is the reason why the spirits banned to the ruins of the monastery down in the valley cannot come up to this Church. They can search for the image of Mary only within their designated area of banishment. And they cannot find it there. Your further question of how this image of Mary could possibly help them; you are correct in assuming that the image itself cannot bring them help. But something else, something that had something to do with the image, brought relieve to their plight in the past. A lot of people came to pray in front of the image when it was still located in the monastery. One also prayed for these ‘poor souls’, as you like to call them, at those opportunities. Prayers can indeed not take away the guilt and punishment of these ‘poor souls’, they do however hear the prayers and their thoughts are also directed towards God. This brings them an alleviation of their condition. Nobody comes and prays anymore since the time the image had been removed and the spirits miss the benefaction these prayers once brought them. They know that the prayers were connected to the presence of the image of Mary. This is why they want to have the image back to where it came from.” Image 11 and 12: Left, view of the monastery ruins near Bad Tönisstein in the Brohltal half way up the steep road from Brohltal to Kell, 2km from Kell.

Mary with the crucified Jesus. We now came to the stairs that led to the organ stage. I dearly wanted to know about the significance of the half pulled organ registers. But another thought occupied my mind at that moment. I asked myself the question of whether he was able to play the organ? I knew that the young man could not do so. There was only one concern: Would the spirit have enough force over the body of the young man that he could move his fingers and feet as fast as playing the organ required? – The request of whether he wanted to play the organ was therefore expressed rather hesitantly. His answer was: “Gladly, if it pleases you”.
