SPAIN, Vicky Forn • At the beginning of 1999, we spoke with Fr. Carlos Padilla about the possibility of undertaking some kind of social work as Schoenstatters in Madrid. During his year as a seminarian, he had worked in Puente Alto in Santiago, Chile, in a very disadvantaged area where María Ayuda had a school, and he was enthused with the idea. In May 1999, on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of the 31st of May, many of us were in Bellavista, and we learned more about the initiativesRead More
Maria Fischer • The small home printer could not keep up with all the many emails that came in the last week of Advent– let us remember that schoenstatt.org has no headquarters or office. So on 18, 19, 20 of December, a partial delivery of all these letters sent to the MTA in the Original Shrine was made filling the jar to the brim They came especially from Latin America – Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, México, and Panamá – but also from the United States, Spain,Read More
Fr. Borja Coello de Portugal, Director of the Movement in Spain • We are back from vacation; for some it was a long time and for others it was short.  And we have ahead of us a marked course by the person of Father Kentenich.  From 15 September 2017 to 15 September 2018 as a Family, we are invited to prepare for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the death of our Father. In this past course, we have tried to get set on fire by “Father’s Fire.”  ThisRead More
SPAIN, Javier González • It is difficult to explain completely what Misión País is, and there are a thousand places to start. Despite this, I believe that the most-timely way would be to begin a story, since we are all one, and without being there…it is difficult to understand it. I will tell you the story of a young person who lived in a room without light. In this society, it is very easy to get confused, get lost without wanting to, like the prodigal son trying to find happinessRead More
SPAIN, Proyecto 3MR, Juan Zaforas and editorial team • The most recent request came from Australia, from the Cistercian Abbey in Yarra Glen. Since 29 April, they and everyone that in one-way or another knew about the movie, no longer has to search or wait. The movie, originally in Spanish with subtitles in several languages, is now accessible to everyone having been uploaded to YouTube, thanks to a very generous apostolic gesture. We are talking about the movie, Tres monjes rebeldes [Three Rebel Monks], a non-profit project, undertaken to makeRead More
SPAIN, José Delgado-Iribarren • With many responsibilities to carry out, we have a very hectic life that often does not allow us to do other things that seem less urgent, but that would let us help others and make us feel much better. A couple of years ago, my professional situation has allowed me some time to do these things that in my case consist in helping disadvantaged people in our surroundings. It is about trying to follow Jesus’ call in the Gospel and to help our fellowman, anyone whoRead More
SPAIN, by Patricia Navas in Aleteia.org • Her marriage separation has transformed her into an expert on closing emotional wounds. In Spain, María Luisa Erhart has listened and accompanied separated married persons for more than ten years through a Catholic service that she leads, which bears the name of the place Jesus rested – Betania [Bethany]. In the following interview in Aleteia, she shares her healing process and confirms that “when God allows a separation, it is always for a greater good.” What common sufferings do separated people experience? NotRead More
SPAIN, Maria Fischer  with material from the Bulletin of the Schoenstatt Movement of Madrid • “The Holy Door that we have crossed in this Jubilee has set us on the path of charity, which we are called to travel daily with fidelity and joy. It is the road of mercy, on which we meet so many of our brothers and sisters who reach for someone to take their hand and become a companion on the way… Two thousand years have passed, yet works of mercy continue to make God’s goodnessRead More
SPAIN, Elena Martín Otín • It has already been ten years since the birth of Betania Spain. What began as a small reality for four separated women, under the protection of its founder María Luisa Erhardt, and Fr. Gabriel García Serrano, our counselor, today is huge reality for more than 200 women integrated into twelve groups. They are united by the common factor of their marriage break-ups. Many of them are in the process of an ecclesial annulment of marriage, or they have resolved this; others are divorced or inRead More
