Three questions…about Schoenstatt of the second century of the Covenant of Love (20)

Today, Nicolás Adrián Prono Brítez, 21, answers: He is from Asunción, Paraguay, and he is a member of the Schoenstatt University Boys’ Youth in Paraguay and of the Misión Roma [Rome Mission] of the University Boys’ Group from Asunción in Rome, Italy •

Six months into the pilgrimage through the second century of the covenant of love…what is your dream for this Schoenstatt in who we are and where we find ourselves in the church and in the world, and in our mission?

I dream of a Schoenstatt that grows in number outwardly and in quality interiorly. That it always raises high the banner of the New Man and the picture of Mary as intercessor, protector, and educator of her Son, Jesus that is so necessary in these times.

In order to fulfill this dream, what do we need to avoid or leave behind?

We have to avoid the fear of trying new models of evangelization, to not allow ourselves to be influenced by external questions at the time of making decisions, and to accompany this with much prayer and reflection.

In order to fulfill this dream, what practical steps do we have to take?

We should get out of ourselves, to give our time, effort and resources with great conviction that we have the responsibility of re-founding Schoenstatt in every future generation.
