EL SALVADOR / COSTA RICA, Patricia and Isidro Perera / mf • Schoenstatt has been in El Salvador for more than 20 years following the arrival of Pilgrim Mother images that came with Father Uriburu and the creation of a women’s group, some of them of Ecuadorian origin, who knew about Schoenstatt. – “El Salvador has proven itself to be very fertile soil to carry the charisma and pedagogy of our father and founder,” says Patricia Fernández de Perera who, together with her husband Isidro, both members of the ApostolicRead More
ARGENTINA, Cristina White • On Friday, October 12th, Feast of Our Lady of Pilar, we remembered the twenty years since Fr. Esteban J. Uriburu’s departure to the house of the Father. Besides the members of his family, many of Fr. Esteban’s spiritual children came to remember him in the Eucharist Fr. Guillermo Carmona celebrated in the Basilica Nuestra Senora del Socorro. Fr. Esteban Uriburu was baptized and began his first steps in the faith in this parish located in the center of Buenos Aires.— It is difficult to express inRead More
Fr. Guillermo Carmona • Soon we will begin the time of Advent[1].  The Virgin is on the way.  She is like a closed ciborium filled with the Lord.  Nobody knows it, only Joseph, her cousin, Elizabeth and her husband Zachary, and perhaps a few more. The rest of humanity and the Jews at the time were unaware; they were unaware of the mystery gestating in her womb, so there will be no room for them in Bethlehem.  How unfortunate to not discover the presence of God when He comes toRead More
PANAMA, Fer Castro and Maria Fischer • On 18 September 2017, the Blessed Mother’s Wayside Shrine was blessed in the San Francisco de la Caleta Parish, in Panama City. During the same celebration, two girls from Girls Youth were commissioned as Pilgrim Mother missionaries along with some of the women. A play, “A Beautiful Place” was presented in this parish a couple of months ago. Inspired by the Schoenstatt pedagogy, it was directed by Dario Ramírez, a young political refugee from Venezuela, who schoenstatt.org interviewed recently. This parish will beRead More
ARGENTINA, Ana Echevarría • Large and small wayside shrines: nailed in mountain areas, forests and valleys, towns and cities, and roadsides. The Mother Thrice Admirable’s wayside shrines sown by the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign are raised braving bad weather: wind, snow, heat, and cold in different places around the world. The popular creativity of missionaries from different nations where these shrines are found displays enormous diversity. However there is something that they all have in common, something that unites them. It is the immense love borne of a Mother’s restless heartRead More
VENEZUELA, Maria Fischer with Mercedes MacDonough • In the end, nobody could say who wanted this meeting more, the Pilgrim Mother, or a certain person, from a Venezuelan city, who loves her (and wishes to remain anonymous, so we will call her Rita – not her real name), “who seeks Mary wherever they speak of her.” Moreover thanks to “connected Schoenstatters,” Rita found a way to receive a picture of the Pilgrim Mother, and take her wherever she wants to go, especially now, in these very difficult times. On 8Read More

She’s back!

By Maria Fischer, written on 13 May, while Pope Francis canonized the little shepherds in Fatima, and with material from Fr. Esteban Uriburu’s book: “João Luiz Pozzobon, Peregrino y misionero de María” • After more than two years on pilgrimage and working in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, on 9 May, the day Fr. Esteban Uriburu (1937- 1998) would have been 80 years old, she returned to Schoenstatt to be entrusted into the hands of her new custodian, Fr. Egon M. Zillekens, the Rector of House Marienau. She is the PilgrimRead More
ARGENTINA, Cristina White • From 13-20 April, we traveled with Maria Fischer to the Pehuajó, Nueve de Julio, Henderson and Bragado communities in the Diocese of Nueve de Julio. This diocese is as large as Switzerland, and it is where Fr. Esteban Uriburu invested a great deal of time and creativity in founding the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign, in other words, the prototype of a Schoenstatt reaching out. In each place, there were open gatherings in the respective parishes and in the cathedral with large participation. Its effect was multiplied thanksRead More
COSTA RICA, Gonzalo Vega• On 18 November 2016, Covenant Day was also a historic day for the Costa Rican Schoenstatt Family.  On this day, a desire came closer to being realized after property was acquired, where Costa Rica and Central America’s first Shrine will be built.  We hopefully project this desire of almost 20 years will become a reality in four months. Family of Hope The Eucharist was celebrated on this property with more than 400 people attending overflowing with joy, applause, and tears. Fr. José Correa Lira – NationalRead More
