ECUADOR, Maria Fischer •
In a short and nice video, a group of children guide us on a virtual pilgrimage to the Schoenstatt Shrine in Quito, Ecuador. —
“It is a visit to the Schoenstatt City Shrine. We are invited to pray the Angelus and the rosary with the Catholic children in the month of Mary”, reads the announcement on José Ronda’s YouTube channel.
Accompanied by the song “Together with you, Mary”, a small group of children, carrying a Pilgrim MTA for children and a candle, run to the Shrine, enter and “take it” praying and singing:
Together with you Mary,
like a child I want to be,
take me in your arms
guide me in my path…
The video also includes a small guide on the screen to guide the moments of prayer: the sign of the cross at the beginning, the reading of a mystery of the rosary of the day, the recitation of an Our Father and two Hail Marys and at the end, again the sign of the cross.
