COSTA RICA, María Paula Alvarado •
On Sunday, November 6th, twenty-four young university girls sealed their Covenant of Love in the Schoenstatt Shrine in San José. —
This group prepared for eight workshops with their leaders, and the girls created attachments in their respective groups, in which joy and service to the Blessed Mother was reflected.
Beyond being the leader of the university girls of San José/West, to have been part of this process as a leader was a great gift for me. The day I met all of them in person, I could not have felt more joy, peace, and the certainty that each one of them was there because the Blessed Mother had prepared their hearts for this moment.
Young women who are trained as engineers, administrators, doctors, lawyers, and marketers have decided to change the world from their realities by taking the love of God and the Blessed Mother from their daily lives.
The desire to conquer their Covenant of Love was reflected in each activity. And at no time did they cease to be surprised by the gifts that God gave us that day.
Now, with great enthusiasm I pray for each one of them and I am sure that this exchange of hearts has already begun to bear fruit!
