Workshop on Kentenich Communication Category

PARAGUAY, by Mima Cardona – “Mass on 1 May at Tupãrenda” (8) • On a Sunday like many God our Father gives us. On the first Sunday of May, it was very cold; there was a blue sky and a radiant sun, in which the warmth of love overcomes the cold morning. We are already well-accustomed to Fr. Antonio’s homilies where he always highlights the love of God and our Mother and Queen who shelters us in her maternal heart, giving us the warmth of a home. This time heRead More
PARAGUAY, by Gisse Peralta • A weekend learning a lot about Kentenich Communication: In Tuparenda on Friday, 30 April, approximately twenty Paraguayans, a Brazilian, and a Chilean–all communicators– met with Maria Fischer, a Schoenstatt communicator, who is in charge of the website.

PARAGUAY, by Sandra Lezcano – Mass on 1 May at Tupãrenda (7) • During the 1 May Sunday Mass celebrated by Fr. Antonio Cosp, I could not help but think about how many stories were gathered there in Holy Mary of the Trinity Church. It made me realize the dimension of Schoenstatt’s richness in the Blessed Mother’s allies’ witness of life. Now I ask myself, what am I contributing to others with my life story?

PARAGUAY, by Sandra Lezcano • Firmness and Tenderness. This is the title of a book by Fr. Antonio Cosp and I cannot find a better title to express the way the Blessed Mother educated me in the first week of May. A few months ago Maria Fischer wrote to me, telling me that Paraguay would host the first Kentenich Communication Workshop. Filled with immense joy, I made myself available to help out in any way I could. The Blessed Mother had already planned what my task would be – to welcomeRead More

At the time, this was one of many conversations we had during our retreat. Arriving at the church, I was taken aback by the large and beautiful image over theRead More
