Carlos E. Barrio y Lipperheide, Argentina • I am saddened by the profound events that dress our contemporary world in mourning.  To cite just a few examples, I think of the recent attack in Barcelona, the hungry and desperate immigrants who reach the developed world’s closed doors, the hunger and misery of so many who cannot find a way to escape their poverty. These pains bring me to the cross of inconsolable people that are destroyed, anxious and hopeless. The weight of so many crosses, much crueler than mine!  WhatRead More

Fr. Guillermo Carmona • For our Schoenstatt Family, Father Kentenich is one of his most central truths – “a point of contact,” we say – along with the Blessed Mother and the Shrine.  He is also an example of the “Covenant that transforms.”  His life history could have transformed him into a bitter person, rancorous, and vindictive. He could have ended up depressed and tormented, like so many prisoners from the concentration camps, renouncing even the Church like those who suffer from the injustice and authoritarianism of some of itsRead More
ARGENTINA, Analía Guaragna • 1,000 Hail Marys in Adoration were prayed on Sunday, 6 August, within the celebration of St. Domingo de Guzmán’s feast day, the patron of the Cathedral and of the Diocese of Nueve de Julio.

Maria Fischer • Is an article in schoenstatt.org something so very quiet and simple worthwhile? Those who sent their petitions, their desires, their gifts, their desperation and confidence to Mary the Mother of the Lord and our Mother, and who will probably never physically visit, are alone in the Shrine, in her small shrine in the Schoenstatt Valley. They fill more than fifty sheets of paper. Long letters and sometimes very brief ones from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Ecuador, Germany India, Italy, Indonesia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru,Read More

ARGENTINA, Carlos Cappelletti • In the measure that the group of Madrugadores in Nueve de Julio, Argentina, which was founded in 2014, grew our illusion increased. With complete confidence, the Blessed Mother showed us the way. We began to focus on inviting those men, who had left the sacraments under different circumstances. In many cases, it was about broken marriages; in the group, they found a place to belong, a space where no one asks anyone questions. We are fortunate to have three people from another religion (the older brothers),Read More
