Monterrey
MEXICO, Gabriela de la Garza • For two years the road to access by car to the Shrine Maria Camino al Cielo has been closed, preventing us from going to this beautiful place of grace that is on top of a hill, in the city of the mountains, as Monterrey, Mexico, is known. — But as the children are always looking for a way to get to their mother’s house, about a year and a half ago, a family of Schoenstatters made a pathway through the mountains that, although itRead More

P Antonio Cosp
ARGENTINA, Juan Barbosa • I received this illustration from Ana Adrogué de Cambaceres and it brought to me many sensations, memories and anecdotes that I promise not to tell all of them, but at least some of them. Antonio Cosp has truly been a doer, an entrepreneur, a born motivator… A man of Mary, literally! — That first contact revealed him in full body At the end of the 80’s, he arrived in Cordoba with his unfailing smile and his lively eyes, eager to advance in the work of Mary,Read More

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

Fr. Juan Pablo Catoggio – Superior General of the Schoenstatt Fathers • I met Fr. Antonio while he was still a deacon in the parish of La Merced in La Plata; I was in my last year of high school and I had not known Schoenstatt for very long. Very soon he invited me to my first Boys’ Youth camp – in Rio de los Sauces, January 1972, where he asked me to prepare a talk. The topic: what is a Schoenstatt leader. He helped me prepare the talk andRead More

María Fischer • Until the end of September 2021, every Monday I received an email from Fr. Antonio Cosp in response to the weekly newsletter with the articles published during the week on Schoenstatt.org. “Thank you, Monina and Maria.

The information is so attractive that it took me a long time to read it. Thank you very much for yourRead More

Marines Crivelli de Domínguez, Argentina • Father Antonio was someone very special in Argentina. I met him in 1982, when he was superior of the Fathers and lived in Buenos Aires and had to go to replace Father Esteban Uriburu on a retreat. — Shortly after, with my husband, we had the opportunity to work with him in many apostolic tasks. He was very dear to the Family Federation, since he was its founder and first assistant. He formed all the first courses, including ours. I was always amazed byRead More

Guadalupada 2022

SPAIN, Pere Pares • The Camino de Guadalupe is one of those great treasures of the Spanish tradition that, because it is not so popular, ends up being forgotten, at least for young people. However, great personalities, such as Isabella the Catholic or Miguel de Cervantes, have lived this pilgrimage and their lives are proof that it is a place of grace. — It has been something totally providential that the youth ended up walking the Camino Real. Originally the pilgrimage was going to be to Javier, but when theyRead More
P. Antonio Cosp
PARAGUAY, Maria Fischer • Today, March 7, 2022, at 9:45 a.m., Father Antonio Cosp was called to the House of the Eternal Father. We feel a great sadness, but even more an enormous gratitude for all that he gave us. There will be much, much to mention and there will be hundreds of stories, memories, moments that will come together in these phrases that he said so many times and that are titles of two books he wrote: “Life is a celebration” and “Nothing will take away my joy”. WeRead More
