Cathedral priest Toni Faber supports initiative of Daniel Landau for deceased physician Lisa-Maria Kellermayr – Silent commemoration with candles on Monday at St. Stephen’s Square from 20.30 clock
Vienna (KAP) – At the planned commemoration of the initiative “YesWeCare” for the Upper Austrian general practitioner Lisa-Maria Kellermayr on Monday evening (from 20:30) at St. Stephen’s Square, the bells of the cathedral will also ring. This was confirmed by cathedral priest Toni Faber on Sunday in an interview with Kathpress. Faber had previously been contacted by #YesWeCare initiator Daniel Landau about it. “I immediately pledged my support and will be there myself on Monday evening when the bells of the cathedral accompany the commemoration and prayer for the deceased,” said the cathedral priest. Meanwhile, the Pummerin will remain silent, because its ringing is “regulated by protocol”.
Faber and Landau showed themselves in the conversation with Kathpress “deeply affected” by the suicide of the doctor on Friday, which in the meantime has been confirmed by the public prosecutor’s office in Wels. Kellermayr had been threatened for months by Corona vaccination opponents and had therefore felt insufficiently supported by the authorities. The #YesWeCare initiator – brother of Caritas President Michael Landau – emphasized the solidary and peaceful character of the action: “We want to commemorate a courageous woman in silence, who stood up for life, and light candles for her.” St. Stephen’s Square and the bells of the cathedral were the worthy setting for this, he said. Landau: “I hope for a strong common sign for social cohesion and against hate.”
The commemoration is planned as a peaceful and quiet gathering on Monday from 8:30 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Square in Vienna, to which Landau and #YesWeCare invite. “And at 9 p.m., we want to commemorate the late Dr. Lisa-Maria Kellermayr by lighting the lights that she brought herself, be it candles or cell phone lights,” said the initiator of the sea of lights.
