ARGENTINA, Mónica García • Tierra de la Promesa (The Promised Land) Shrine of Rawson, Chubut recently turned twenty-five years old. Memories and a “movie” of experiences, which have meant growth in some aspects, as well as concerns in others, filled us. This shrine’s birthday also presented us with the challenge of continuing to go forward with our mission: our personal mission and the mission of the shrine—in short, the Schoenstatters’ mission in today’s world, in perseverance of self-education. — This event filled us with renewed energy, and we worked hardRead More

ARGENTINA, Ana C de Echevarria • It happens in all families. When we are children many times we do not value what the presence, action and love of our parents means in our lives; it is something that is so natural to us. As time passes, we discover how many of our parents small and large actions marked and forged what we are today. This year of the Father and Founder (Year of Father Kentenich), which we as a Family have proposed to celebrate, is a special time to pauseRead More
