By The Most Reverend Manuel Camilo Vial Risopatron, Chile •
On August 1st, collaborators and those responsible for schoenstatt.org joyfully received an inspiring and motivational message from the Most Reverend Manuel Camilo Vial Risopatron, a Schoenstatt Father from Chile’s first generation, Bishop Emeritus of the Temuco Diocese, President of the Chilean Episcopal Conference Social Area, and a member of the Pastoral Commission. Because truly, all who share their real life stories and all those who visit schoenstatt.org website are collaborators, we want to share this greeting with everyone.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Covenant of Love,
Once again I want to congratulate you on this excellent instrument of communion with the Schoenstatt Family; and from this, with the Living Church in the world.
I am very happy that you are taking Pope Francis’ invitation seriously of being on the way with the marvelous charism that the Lord and Blessed Mother have given to us and that is an immense task for all of us.
May the Holy Spirit, from Blessed Mother’s Shrine, bless you for this beautiful work of spreading the Gospel in a very active and appropriate way for our times, without distinction as to age or race.
Blessings from your brother in the Covenant of Love
+Father Bishop Manuel Camilo
