It was exhibited on the altar ofRead More

How is this? — Cassio, a member of the Schoenstatt Family of Brazil and of the Dreamteam of schoenstatt.org, on a trip through Europe arrived at the Shrine of Lisbon as an intermediate stop on hisRead More
COMMUNICATION ACCORDING TO JOSEPH KENTENICH’S EXAMPLE, Maria Fischer .    “So that you can tell your son and grandson” (Ex 10:2). Life creates history.
