By Paz Leiva, Madrid, Spain, 07.11.2020 • Mrs. von Teuffenbach: I have read your book. It was not an easy task and not because of the language. The documentation you provide made the screen blurry at times, a lump in my throat, or my stomach closed. I have had a hard time.— Nevertheless, I have to admit my admiration for you. You have accomplished in record time a work that Schoenstatt should have started in 1975. But we have been very busy, celebrating milestones, anniversaries, dates, and when not, weRead More

LETTER FROM THE GENERAL PRESIDIUM TO THE SCHOENSTATT FAMILY – 30.10.2020 • “We are not afraid of the truth”, says Father Juan Pablo Catoggio, on behalf of the General Presidium of Schoenstatt, in a letter published today (October 30, 2020), which begins with the observation: “These are difficult times for all of us”, and “new” and “shocking” he calls the current publications, while at the same time it clearly signals that Schoenstatt wants to face a thorough historical reappraisal.— “We want to take the consternation of the Family seriously,” heRead More

One of us

Vicky Ramirez Jou and Claudio Ardissone, Paraguay • What we are experiencing, from the denunciations and publications, will indeed be the pains of growth and maturity. We have to discern, dialogue, read and pray a lot. I hope that all the fathers and the sisters, all of us, will see the richness of Schoenstatt in its pedagogy and not only in the figure of Fr. Kentenich. — Fr. Kentenich was human and fallible, but the legacy he left brings us very close to God and our MTA, so the MovementRead More

A moment of discernment

Editorial schoenstatt.org • Just to clarify: this article is not about the book, but to inform our readers about its publication. Much less is it a response to the book or to the articles published about it, but rather a response to God who speaks to us through events. Paraphrasing your article, Ignacio (not available in English), the context of discovery is the book or are the publications of Mrs. Von Teuffenbach, the context of justification is the call of God at this time in the history of the ChurchRead More

Wilfried Röhrig and Klaus Glas, Germany • “Klaus Glas and I got together a few weeks ago and talked intensively about the current situation in the Kentenich cause. Seven theses emerged from our exchange, which we would like to pass on to all interested parties. We see our considerations as an impulse for the further development process and would be happy about a publication on schoenstatt.org! With pleasure. And we from the editorial staff of schoenstatt.org would also like to receive many comments, as we have done in previous articles.Read More

Official Communique, Heinrich Brehm (Media Commission, Schoenstatt)• This summer, the General Presidium of the International Schoenstatt Work established an international research group intended to ensure a coordinated, joint investigation of key themes and processes in the history of Schoenstatt that led to the exile of Schoenstatt’s founder, Father Joseph Kentenich, in Milwaukee. The members of the research group were officially appointed at the Presidium meeting on October 12, 2020.— The goal is to develop a critical edition of various texts and ways of acting of Father Joseph Kentenich in keepingRead More
BRAZIL, Ana Paula Paiva • On September 27, the so-called E-Kentenich was held in Brazil: a virtual initiative of study groups on the thought of the father and founder. It was the third meeting of the cycle of studies for the year 2020, and the topic revolved around the new social order, motivated by the writings on the social thought of Father Joseph Kentenich, prepared by Father Humberto Anwandter.— E-Kentenich: Initiative for a Continental Country. The E-Kentenich emerged as a response for the Brazilian Schoenstatt Family, especially with regard toRead More
ARGENTINA, Maria Fischer • There are many ways to remember each year on September 15, the anniversary of Fr. Joseph Kentenich’s death, and this year, it will be in the context of the shocks of the pandemic and a serious questioning of the person of Fr. Kentenich and his family’s relationship with him. It can be done, as always, with Masses, with prayers, with marathons of memories, videos and photos… or, with an Episcopal ordination. By placing the life of a Schoenstatter and thus have a whole Movement at theRead More
Editorial Board schoenstatt.org • The last few weeks have been very intense for everyone, but we are very satisfied to have been able to echo all your sensibilities, and with this, we hope and trust that we have contributed to create a space for opinion based on individual freedom, in which the diversity within Schoenstatt can be seen along with its richness  – although in the english version of schoenstatt.org we could not offer all the articles published in Spanish, German, and Portuguese, due to lack of translators. — ThisRead More
SPAIN, Paz Leiva and Miguel Angel Rubio • In spite of everything that has happened since July 1st, the first Workshop on the Social Thought of Father Kentenich in Spain has ended. A door was opened in the month of February. We read an article by Rafael Mascayano on schoenstatt.org and I wrote a comment. — As a result of this comment, Rafael offered us material to set up a workshop in Spain. We are left with the idea: “but we cannot teach a workshop that is not ours, withoutRead More
