EL SALVADOR, Ana Mercedes de Nieuwenhuis •
Sunday, 18 October, the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign’s missionaries were extremely united in celebrating another year of the Movement’s founding. On this this occasion, they also invited the Apostolic Nuncio from El Salvador, Bishop León Kalenga Badkebele, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to celebrate the Mass of thanksgiving. Fr. Edwin Henríquez, pastor of the Divine Child Parish con-celebrated.
In his homily, the Nuncio encouraged the missionaries to continue with their task of taking the Blessed Mother to homes, hospitals, retirement homes, and orphanages. There is an urgent need for her to transform hearts. He spoke at length about Schoenstatt’s charism, and he mentioned that he was at Schoenstatt last year.
The esteem he has for the Movement sensed, and he was invited to a small gathering in the parish hall, where they had a friendly chat with him.
