Monterrey Santuario
MEXICO, Karla Leal •  As an teenager, almost an adult, in the late 90’s, I used to climb up the sidewalk that existed at that time, and I carried a small bag with cement in one hand and with the other I held on to the ropes that were there to help us climb. Some time later, I remember the blessing of the wayside shrine that was built with the materials that so many young people carried up in backpacks. That day many little violet flowers came out and weRead More
Monterrey
MEXICO, Gabriela de la Garza •  It seems incredible the way time goes by when you love something, make it your home and recognize yourself as part of a big family. — On May 18, 2001, a dream began on the top of a hill…a madness for many, with a very rustic and complicated access road, without public services…but with the illusion, commitment and much love the Schoenstatt Family of Monterrey blessed the Shrine of Maria Camino al Cielo (Mary way to Heaven). There is no doubt that Mary tookRead More

Grabador Geloso 1
ARGENTINA, Claudia Echenique • This week, while I was reading all the reviews and memories that many people made about Fr. Antonio Cosp, I remembered a personal story about him. In the mid-1990s, many photos, videos, films and audios that were in analog formats began to be digitized. And that was one of the jobs I was doing, in addition to recording and editing videos. Fr. Antonio, who was about to return to Paraguay after many years in Argentina, called me one day. “I have a consultation and a requestRead More
