Villa Devoto
ARGENTINA, Fr. Martín Clavijo • For several years, the parish of San Rafael in Villa Devoto, in whose parish church a picture of the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt was placed on May 31, has celebrated Masses for the novena of their patron saint in a corner of the neighborhood. Nothing spectacular: a crossroads, a small house with an open door, a neighbor who lends a small table and a tablecloth, another who brings a few benches…But isn’t it often the small, the most insignificant that is the origin ofRead More

COSTA RICA, Sergio Sánchez • The Covenant of Love with Mary is Schoenstatt’s original way of living the baptismal covenant. It expresses and guarantees our covenant with the Blessed Trinity.

And today, especially in the Family of Hope Shrine, this vitality could be experienced. — From very early in the morning, monitors and members of the Pastoral groups of the Shrine worked on all the details for the great celebration;Read More

ITALY, Patricia Manson • For fifteen years now, week after week, a small group of Schoenstattian faithful have been unfailingly meeting every Wednesday at the Cor Ecclesiae Shrine in Rome to pray the Rosary. As long as it was possible, and I could find a ride since I do not drive, I too most willingly would join them to participate in a prayer gathering of a rather new type for me, who grew up in a Protestant environment. — I must admit that at first I met with difficulty inRead More

Kanzler, Superior General of the Institute of the Schoenstatt Brothers of Mary, passed away. On December 29th, 100 people in the Pilgrims’Read More

Surrounded by his brothers in community, cared for by the Palliative Care Unit, and sustained by the prayers of two countries that he loved deeply and that loved him just as much. — In Chile, his country of origin, his large family: his community ofRead More
