PARAGUAY, Joaquín Santiviago • Joaquín Santiviago, the director of Coro Alegría, relates about the mission of this choir and its objectives.

During this prayer, the Glorious, Joyful, Sorrowful and Luminous mysteries reveal the life of him, whoRead More
PARAGUAY, Andrea Blasco • I’ve received one of the greatest blessings a person can ask for. I found a place where people can abandon their inconveniences, their conflicts, and their problems, and learn to entrust themselves fully and completely to Mother Mary’s hands. Somewhere where they can be themselves for Jesus Christ. A time they can offer their whole heart so that God may bless others. The Joy of Schoenstatt During the summer of 2017 I received an advertisement that invited everyone interested to participate in an audition to enterRead More
PARAGUAY, Agr. Eng. Martin Pereira Ortiz • At present the entire world is experiencing climate change, heat or cold spikes, hurricanes, violent rain, hailstorms, or prolonged droughts are happening more often. These natural disasters increase as a result of the imbalance we cause, or being realistic, what we previously called weather phenomena will be natural disasters in the future.

PARAGUAY, Fr. Antonio Cosp Fontclara • Yes, it is not easy to get over the amazement! Like over the last few years, we welcomed approximately 40,000 pilgrims. Many of them left the night before to arrive at dawn, so Tupãrenda was filled with voices and joy since early morning.

The day’s four Masses were filled with a shade-seeking multitude. Three Masses were offered from the portico of HolyRead More

It was Our Lady of Schoenstatt, our beloved Blessed Mother’s Day. Every year on October 18, thousands of pilgrims arrive in Tupãrenda from all theRead More

I say this so that you will understand the magnitude of what sealing the Covenant of Love and the preparation that led me to make the decision for this “yes” means toRead More
