Dequeni
PARAGUAY, Maria Fischer • It is amid this meeting full of questions, presentations, conversations, answers, and laughter, that I understand more clearly than ever what these more than two years of pandemic have done to all of us. It is not the same to communicate at a distance, read messages and watch videos, as it is to sit in the same place, look at each other, listen to each other, “feel” each other. It is the morning of April 21, at the headquarters of the Dequeni Foundation in Fernando deRead More
CMT graduados
PARAGUAY, Ricardo Acosta • The month of May has given us the first gifts of the year 2022. Last Friday the 13th, three new graduates joined the more than 50 graduates of FUNDAPROVA’s House Mother of Tupãrenda program. The event took place in the occasion of the awarding of the certificates of the program and of the Horticulture and Bakery courses of Sinafocal, in the presence of the authorities of both institutions. — This emotional act was accompanied by family, friends and loved ones of the new graduates. The audacityRead More
pastoral carcelaria
PARAGUAY, Cristi Santacruz • Today while going through Twitter I read the affirmation of a graduate specialist in addiction prevention and treatment: “The closer the family is, the farther away the drug is”. A statement that rang loud in the ears, but louder in the heart. — In 2016, when I started my apostolate of visiting every Saturday the Integral Educational Center of Itauguá and La Esperanza, for children and young people in conflict with the law, I heard hundreds of stories that have one factor in common: The familyRead More
Encarnación pórtico
PARAGUAY, Raquel and Nico Serrati, via Revista Tupãrenda • On Sunday, April 24th, Family Day in Paraguay, the blessing of our entrance portico to the grounds of the future shrine in the South, near the Encarnación waterfront, was held. The conquest had been prepared before the pandemic and was put on hold for two years. To this end, during the previous week, the process was revitalized by means of a triduum of rosaries at the wayside shrine, which has already been on the grounds for some years. —  Writing ourRead More
Casa Madre de Tuparenda
PARAGUAY, Fr. Pedro Kühlcke • Everyone has suffered in the more than two years since the beginning of the pandemic, but especially the most disadvantaged throughout the world, including Paraguay. The “Casa Madre de Tupãrenda” (CMT) program could only be carried out digitally – by telephone and WhatsApp – and with the boys’ food, the house itself had to be closed. Visits to the youth prison, no way. But the time of Easter will come… — In the meantime, here in Paraguay the pandemic has happily subsided, so we canRead More
Grabador Geloso 1
ARGENTINA, Claudia Echenique • This week, while I was reading all the reviews and memories that many people made about Fr. Antonio Cosp, I remembered a personal story about him. In the mid-1990s, many photos, videos, films and audios that were in analog formats began to be digitized. And that was one of the jobs I was doing, in addition to recording and editing videos. Fr. Antonio, who was about to return to Paraguay after many years in Argentina, called me one day. “I have a consultation and a requestRead More
Convenio Corte Suprema
PARAGUAY, Roberto M. González •  Our story of the visit to Casa Madre de Tupãrenda (CMT), by the president Dr. César Diesel and the second vice-president, Prof. Dr. Luis María Benítez Riera (period 2021-2022), of the Supreme Court of Justice, had its central point on February 15, 2022. — At the end of the visit, a commitment was made to sign an agreement between CMT and the Supreme Court of Justice. After preliminary exchanges on the points of the agreement to be signed, a final draft was ready. A fewRead More
P. Antonio Cosp
María Fischer • Until the end of September 2021, every Monday I received an email from Fr. Antonio Cosp in response to the weekly newsletter with the articles published during the week on Schoenstatt.org. “Thank you, Monina and Maria. It is a pleasure to receive your information…How many blessings our beloved Schoenstatt gives us! Blessings, Father Antonio.” Or: “Hello Maria and Monina, what a great job this last mailing. The information is so attractive that it took me a long time to read it. Thank you very much for yourRead More
P. Antonio Cosp
PARAGUAY, Maria Fischer • Today, March 7, 2022, at 9:45 a.m., Father Antonio Cosp was called to the House of the Eternal Father. We feel a great sadness, but even more an enormous gratitude for all that he gave us. There will be much, much to mention and there will be hundreds of stories, memories, moments that will come together in these phrases that he said so many times and that are titles of two books he wrote: “Life is a celebration” and “Nothing will take away my joy”. WeRead More

Therefore the Blessed Mother

PARAGUAY, Natalia Regúnega • It was a great and pleasant surprise the one that Juan Vicente Ramirez shared a couple of days ago. A couple who are members of CIEES (International Community of Schoenstatt Businessmen and Executives) installed an altarpiece with the picture of the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt at the main entrance of their warehouse Pazos de Toledo, a loading and unloading warehouse in Ciudad del Este. —  Why? Natalia and Saúl explain: After a nice work experience in Ciudad del Este in 2019, we decided with ourRead More
