NIGERIA, Schoenstatt Fathers • About fifty-six Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign members from Obafemi Awolowo University’s Resurrection Chapel, in the Oshogbo Diocese, Ife, visited the Victory Shrine for the first time. • For them, this visit was a moment of personal encounter with the Blessed Mother in the shrine. There was a celebration of the Mass for them at 9am followed immediately by confession, a time for Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament, the Holy Rosary, and then Fr.

ROMA BELMONTE/SCHOENSTATT ROSARY CAMPAIGN, Mercedes Bonorino and Maria Fischer • “Everything that this great Campaign generates is a joy for the soul! It touches so many people and above all, how our beloved MTA showers the graces of the Shrine. João Pozzobon is really a saint! From something so small, we can see, feel, and experience so many miracles. I always say something that we experienced with Raúl: the Rosary Campaign is not an apostolate; it is a great gift from God! This was one of the many comments withinRead More
USA, Maria E. Garcia • The Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign of the South East Texas Region has the opportunity to meet twice a year. The Pilgrim Mother arrived in this region of Texas in the early 1980’s.

With the rapid and fruitful growth of the Pilgrim Mothers’ visits over the next two decades, Schoenstatt Father Hector Vega and Raquel decided a bi-annual conference would be in order to apprise missionaries/coordinatorsRead More
PORTUGAL, María del Carmen and José Carlos Cravo • During this Marian year when we are celebrating the 100th year of the Fatima apparitions, an eight-month itinerary (March to October) to accompany the visit of the Pilgrim Mother was proposed to me: a monthly meditation and a resolution that is a missionary gesture to take her to everyone. At the same time, we will symbolically build a rosary with our life, answering the Blessed Mother’s call, “I want (…) you to continue praying the Rosary daily in honor of OurRead More
ARGENTINA, Martha Liotti • It all began on 13 January 2010, when Florencia Yasmín was born, at twenty-eight weeks, weighing 1.350 grams, and she was placed in an incubator. That same day, she received a visit from the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother in the modality of at-risk babies and children, and her parents consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. Two months of silent waiting went by marked by days and nights of farewells, which were always painful. Florencia grew healthy with no difficulties, and finally she was released weighing 2,300 grams.

COSTA RICA, by Rudolf Sauter and Maria Fischer • This Thursday, a 7.0 earthquake, with its epicenter right off El Salvador’s Pacific coast, shook the Central American territory hours after hurricane Otto entered Nicaragua from the Caribbean. Within a few hours, these small Central American countries – Panama, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica – many of them with a high degree of poverty, found themselves with quake damage in the west and a hurricane in the east. Panamá, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica… are countries that sound “familiar”Read More

Those who arrived to begin the procession to remember JoãoRead More
