mkf. A few days ago, the international news agency, Zenit, published an article containing an interview with Fr. Giancarlo Centioni about the illegal network Pio XII started to help Jewish people. In one line of this article, there is an incorrect reference to Fr. Kentenich and his role in this network, the German branch of which operated under a society called Raphaels-Verein, founded by the Pallotine Fathers. As a result of this article and the echo that spread both throughout the Schoenstatt Family and various other circles, it has becomeRead More
Fr. Nicolás Schwizer. The 20th of January of 1942 is for Father not only one of the four milestones, but is also the axis of our history.      Read More
2009 comes to its end and as usual during this time, I make this meditation between the celebrations of Christmas and Epiphany. Undoubtedly, the "globalization" of the world has made us live some events with intensity: global warming, world-wide economic crisis, terrorism, insecurity, migration…..

Fr. Alberto Eronti. September 15th evokes a series of memories for me, as a result of what I experienced 41 years ago. The group of students of the Schoenstatt Fathers saw Father alive for the last time shortly before September 15th. Father’s health had been deteriorating and the Sisters of Mary cared for him zealously.
