A wayside shrine with an auspicious past

Perú, Ernesto Morón García •

The Blessed Mother’s wayside shrine in Parque Santo Tomás, in the San Borja district of Lima (Peru) recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with the presence of the National Adviser, Fr. Juan Pablo Rovegno, and pilgrims from San Borja, the district where the Schoenstatt Movement arrived in Peru from Ecuador in 1972, through Mr. and Mrs. Chang.

Its location is unique; it is on Limatambo, a Dominican monastic estate, a holy place where St. Rose of Lima, St. Martin de Porres, and St. John Masías walked in the 16th century. It was the former Limatambo airport, where Fr. Joseph Kentenich passed on his way from Santiago into exile in 1952.

It has been a place for an entire generation’s many prayers and capital of graces so that the Blessed Mother will choose her little place in a corner of San Borja.

Our Schoenstatt Shrine in La Molina, east of Lima, has given us its blessings since 2003.
