Maria mujer mujeres
Bárbara de Franceschi, Spain • This morning, looking at you, Mary, I gave thanks for every woman. For all that you are, for your delicate purity, your capacity to love each and everyone, your gentle gaze and your arms holding the Child and in Him each one of us. — Today, surely, all women: the women of that time, wrapped in that long garment, who at home made their bread every day, waiting for their children who brought fresh fish that they themselves caught with their nets, who taught themRead More

Guadalupada 2022

SPAIN, Pere Pares • The Camino de Guadalupe is one of those great treasures of the Spanish tradition that, because it is not so popular, ends up being forgotten, at least for young people. However, great personalities, such as Isabella the Catholic or Miguel de Cervantes, have lived this pilgrimage and their lives are proof that it is a place of grace. — It has been something totally providential that the youth ended up walking the Camino Real. Originally the pilgrimage was going to be to Javier, but when theyRead More
GERMANY, Sr. M. Elinor Grimm • Royal wedding at the start the day before – a young man from the Schoenstatt Youth (SMJ) married his Kathi – at the end, right on time after the coronation celebration on May 1st: raindrops! This framed the coronation celebration at the Parallele Shrine in Koesching near Ingolstadt. — In other years there were always around 2,000 pilgrims on May 1, but the pandemic crossed that out! Only 200 were allowed outside around the Shrine. Numbers and texts were not enough. “Fence-sitters” were stillRead More
ARGENTINA, Claudia Echenique • “What work did you just do, and what did Jesus say to you? He found you at your table, with your nets, in your things.

ITALY, Federico Bauml • This past June 17th, in a crowded Shrine of Cor Ecclesiae, four young people sealed their Covenant of Love with Mary. — Anna, Caterina, Giovanni and Giuseppe (these are the names of the four new allies) have spent time preparing themselves, accompanied by a leader and the testimony of others who already knew the fascination of this special consecration typical of the Schoenstatt charism, and who have chosen to dedicate themselves to this project. Moreover for the great day, they wanted the most beloved people alongRead More
