The Blessed Mother’s crown of the Bellavista Shrine was stolen

CHILE, editorial team •

We were just informed about the painful event in the Shrine of Bellavista, Chile. The following announcement was posted on the social networks of the Schoenstatt Bellavista Cenacle Shrine that we want to share with all of Schoenstatt:

 

We are sorry to inform you that on this 18 January the Bellavista Shrine was attacked by anti-social people; they stole the Blessed Mother’s crown, with which our Father and Founder crowned her in 1949.

Please share this painful news to prevent these people from breaking down the Crown, which has an immense historic value, and we ask for prayers for the entire Schoenstatt Family from Bellavista, who is profoundly saddened with this news. Thank you.

 

Crown of the Bellavista Shrine

Greeting on the Shrine website, before the theft:

“Let us be Mary to do God`s will and sing with joy” – Pope Francis, Chile, January 17, 2018
