PARAGUAY, Testimonies about the Family Missions, at Mbocayaty • For me, to talk about the missions is to talk about allowing oneself to be surprised by God’s Providence, thinking about his immense generosity, that generosity that is given to: the people of the mission town, to the missionaries, the life and mission families, the children, the priests and the consecrated, who accompany us, those who come from a distance, but above all those brave ones who are challenged to give their fiat to abandon themselves and their comfort zones goingRead More
PARAGUAY, Testimonies of Family Missions2015, María Emilia Vidal de Zaván • As a member of the editorial staff at Tupãrenda Magazine, and knowing that I am a part of the family missions, I was asked to take charge of an article on this subject. My first reaction was– of course! That’s easy!! But when I sat down to write, a thousand images and sensations passed through my mind and heart…and the task was not as easy as I had previously thought…there was so much to say! There was so muchRead More
PARAGUAY, Testimonies about the Family Missions 2015, Alexandra Garcete de Sánchez • This is our second year to go on mission in Melgarejo, a city in the Department del Guaira. Last year we chose Borja…but the Blessed Mother had chosen other people. She closed some doors, and she opened others until we realized where she wanted us to go. And this year the creative result allowed us to verify that it was Melgarejo! The welcome, openness and warmth that we received from all Melgarejo’s residents were impressive. This year whenRead More

PARAGUAY, testimonies of the Schoenstatt Family Missions 2015, Oscar Aguilera •                                                                                Tuesday night, I was overwhelmed with anxiety.

Ñumi, a new village. Everything was new like the heart I now have after this great experience. The great day finally arrived.

PARAGUAY, Rolando José Benítez Velázquez • I lost my mother two years ago; it was a very powerful experience for me as I greatly depended upon her. I believe it is something that I will never overcome. I distanced myself from religion, I distanced myself from God, and I felt empty until a very special person in my life showed me a road that I never thought I would take: she invited me to the missions. With many doubts and not much desire, I accepted that invitation without knowing whatRead More

By Bárbara de Francheschi, Madrid • Peñarroya-Pueblonuevo is a place in Córdoba, Spain, bordering on Extremadura. Its river, Guadiato, irrigates the feet of the Sierra Morena Mountains, which are seen in the distance and are green in springtime. Great pastures border the town, and these pastures are filled with centuries old oak and olive trees in which partridges and all types of birds cohabit and nest in an almost Mediterranean climate with mild winters and summers that are not too warm compared to the rest of the Córdoba province. “CórdobaRead More
