En Santiago de Compostela
SPAIN, Luis Ortiz • A while ago a patient of about 84 years of age arrived at the hospital in León. She had a brain tumour and had to be operated. I met her during my daily visits to each of the rooms. When I introduced myself as a religious service, the joy on her face was immediate! She asked for holy anointing and communion. The three sons who accompanied her were annoyed by the presence of the religious service to the point of telling their mother that it wasRead More
Premiere en Madrid
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
Escuela de padres
SPAIN, Pilar Martín Moreno • Asterix (you probably know the French comic series by René Goscinny) lives around the year 50 BC in a fictional village in northwestern Gaul. It is the only part of the country not conquered by Julius Caesar, and is therefore surrounded by four Roman camps. In many Asterix books, the main plot is the attempt of the Roman army to occupy the village, but they do not succeed. This village is invincible because it has a druid who makes a magic potion that makes themRead 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”. If we already watched with amazement the repercussion of the ” Madre Ven” Pilgrimage, the idea of the production of a movie of it and the premiere in several dozens of movie theaters, seemed to us a subject of pious fiction… We are talking about cinema, this is Avatar II and Wakanda and EO, but ” Madre, ven”? Yes. This movie – let’s rememberRead More
Premiere en Madrid
SPAIN, Paz Leiva • Saturday morning and to the cinema. An unusual plan, but the movie “Madre, ven” is being shown in the center of Madrid and we bought tickets. We are looking forward to it. Some people saw it at the premiere and agree that it is worth it. — We walk from home and arrive in time in front of the Paz Cinema. It’s a sunny but cold day. So, we take our seats, row 6, in the aisle, “right in the middle,” as my mother used toRead More
Forta
SPAIN, Carlos Sáinz de los Terreros • Last Sunday, October 23, we met with couples who had participated in the different sessions of the Workshop for the Strengthening of Marriage (FORTA). Since the first event in September 2015, there have already been nine of them in Spain, in which more than two hundred couples have participated. — FORTA has been an unforgettable experience for all who have participated. But there is a catch: once it has been participated, it cannot be repeated. In response to the concern expressed by manyRead More

Camino
SPAIN, Johannes Frick (Germany) •  Every journey starts with the first step. “I’ll walk the Camino!” – as simple as it sounds it is way more than that… I knew that I had to do it my way. This meant to start at the Schoenstatt Shrine in Heroldstatt in which shadow I spent so much time growing up; summer camps with the Boys’ Youth, weekend activities… The shrine that links Pater Kentenich to our family as Heroldstatt is the home town of my maternal grandparents. Leaving this shrine that’s whereRead More
Curso de comunicación
SPAIN, Laura Tovar • It was Jesus himself who told his disciples not to worry about what they were going to say or how they were going to say it when they were asked about the announcement of the Kingdom. He would send them the Holy Spirit who would inspire them with the right words. — Today, we also implore the Holy Spirit to inspire us with the right way and the right words to announce the Kingdom in the present times. But, honoring the “nothing without You, nothing withoutRead More
