JMJ Lisboa 2023
WYD Lisbon 2023, Maria Fischer • It feels like going through withdrawal. The thousands of young people are missing, the hectic pace of press releases and photos offered by the WYD Lisbon 2023 press center, the live transmissions, the work against the clock of the schoenstatt.org team to cover the experiences in Lisbon… What will the youth of this World Youth Day take with them? And what about us? What about the many critics who were not there, but “know” that there was a lack of critical press, that everythingRead More

The faith that moves mountains or overcomes them. The faith that heals and performs miracles. Our task for today is to askRead More

SPAIN, Ambrosio Arizu/Maria Fischer • “Tell them to write on the web”, Ambrosio Arizu answers me when I tell him that within the schoenstatt.org team, after so many articles about Madre Ven – the pilgrimage in 2021, and the film in 2022 – the hope grew to be able to see the film also in Portugal and Argentina. The diffusion of the film is in charge of the production company Goya… but with the touch of “nothing without us”, since Goya acts from the popular request, expressed in a formRead More
Madre ven la pelicula
SPAIN, Maria Fischer • “Let’s go on pilgrimage with the Blessed Mother through the cinemas! Join this week and take ” Madre Ven” to many people”.

Yes. This movie – let’s rememberRead More
