BRAZIL, Melissa Rossatti •
It is lass than two months until the blessing of the Shrine of Caieiras, a city of the greater São Paulo region. With a spirit of establishing a countdown and in the spirit of work and prayer, the Caierias Schoenstatt Family joyfully extends an official invitation for this date.
The new century’s first Schoenstatt Shrine in Brazil will be developed by laypeople through the Christi Indivisible Apostolic Association, however the entire accompaniment and spiritual focus is under direction of the Our Lady of Schoenstatt Institute through Mrs. Ana Christina Mequiades’ hands who sent the invitation to me and to those belonging to the Movement’s Family in the city.
The picture of the Blessed Mother is printed on the front of the invitation, emphasizing the idea that she really is the one who is at the forefront of establishing her dwelling in Caieiras. On the back, there are some photos of the work, names of the Regional Superior of the Institute of Our Lady of Schoenstatt, María Augusta Borelli Landgraf, President of the Caieriras Schoenstatt Family Council, and Suely Luzia Crema Bayerlein of the President of the Christi Indivisible Apostolic Association, along with Luverci Rossatti Duva; it also provides information such as the date, time, and location of the Shrine. Therefore everyone who has access to the invitation can learn a little of the trajectory of this conquest.
The invitation is extended to the entire International Schoenstatt Family and the Church so that everyone will feel welcome and a part of the celebration that will mark the MTA’s possession of one more shrine for the Church and the world.
The Shrine will be blessed on 17 September 2017, at 10:00 a.m. at Avenida da Paz nº 315, Barrio Morro Grande, Caieiras / SP.
