Brazil, Fr. Matheus da Silva Bernardes • The text published by the Schoenstatt General Presidium on the official schoenstatt.com website on 10 March 2021 is in keeping with the tone of previous texts, that is, the absence of constructive self-criticism and the complete inability to emphathize with victims of abuse. – Just when we thought that all of the issues around Fr. Joseph Kentenich, the founder of the International Schoenstatt Movement, were beginning to calm down, the emergence of new situations show that the matter is far from closed. ThisRead More

A moment of discernment

Editorial schoenstatt.org • Just to clarify: this article is not about the book, but to inform our readers about its publication. Much less is it a response to the book or to the articles published about it, but rather a response to God who speaks to us through events. Paraphrasing your article, Ignacio (not available in English), the context of discovery is the book or are the publications of Mrs. Von Teuffenbach, the context of justification is the call of God at this time in the history of the ChurchRead More
Ignacio Serrano del Pozo, Chile • It is still not even a month (refers to the publication of the original version of this article: 07/26/2020) since the controversial report appeared in which the historian and theologian Alexandra von Teuffenbach denounced having found documents in the Vatican files, which compromised the moral integrity of Father Joseph Kentenich.  However, to many of us this time has seemed like a full year, if not more, marked by emotional wear and intense discussion. We could even admit that we had never read so manyRead More

His person, his capacity of acceptance, his simple luminosity and his deep spirituality, impacted and still impacts my life today. As I got to know him more and deepened inRead More
Ignacio Serrano del Pozo, Chile • The recent information provided by the German newspaper Tagespost, referring to the research of the theologian and historian Alexandra von Teuffenbach, has left a good part of the Schoenstatters confused and discouraged.  The analysis carried out during the pontificate of Pius XII in the Vatican, contains a lot of material about the visitation of Father Sebastian Tromp, among this would be found – according to von Teuffenbach – notes about the conversations of the Dutch Jesuit with Father Joseph Kentenich, as well as lettersRead More
Redacción Schoenstatt.org • “I think a lot of objectivity will be demanded from us”, said Bishop Francisco Pistilli of Encarnación, giving a hint at this time. Today, July 2, 2020, the German newspaper “Die Tagespost”, a traditional Catholic medium, published a note written by historian Alexandra von Teuffenbach, Rome, on documents from the Vatican files from the time of Pius XII, which since March have been available to everyone in the context of Pope Francis’ initiative for greater transparency in the church.
