Editors schoenstatt.org • The date of the book, or at least its preface, is the Feast of the Visitation of Mary in 2021 – although it is not clear whether this means May 31, when it is celebrated in the universal Church, or July 2, when it is celebrated in German-speaking countries.

A system-analytical essay. — I The “and” is crucial – it protects us from the “either-or”!

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
