Fr. Diogo Barata on behalf of the Schoenstatt Fathers of Spain | Letter to the Schoenstatt Movement of Spain • The Schoenstatt Fathers from Spain want to share with you a first reflection on the news that have appeared in the last few hours.

CHILE, Francisco Javier Troncoso • Chile, recent news: CORFO (state owned company) is about to recover “the vase.” CORFO, the Chilean Economic Development Agency, where I used to work and where Mario Hiriart also worked in the 1940s, was the victim of a 85 million dollar scam in 2003.

Today I want to comment on what Pope Francis told the media that touches me personally. Pope Francis, in his message for the 52nd World CommunicationsRead More
Carlos Barrio and Lipperheide, Argentina, author of “La alegría en el trabajo” [Joy in work] • Comments on Pope Francis’ prayer for the 52nd World Communications Day (2018)  — Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Help us to recognize the evil latent in a communication that does not build communion. Help us to remove the venom from our judgements. Help us to speak about others as our brothers and sisters.

By Sarah-Leah Pimentel, Cape Town, South Africa There is a story that goes like this: A wicked king wanted to destroy his people’s faith in God. So he called his wisest advisors and asked them where they could hide the truth of God’s existence so that the people would never find him. The first adviser said: “Hide the truth of their God in the furthest star, where they can never find it.” “No,” said the second counsellor. “One day, they will learn to fly and find their God.

Francis week by week (12) • The quotation this week is taken from Pope Francis’ homily during the Mass at Santa Marta on 20 May 2016. Let us read and listen this week to the message as if spoken to us, as a Schoenstatt that goes out, a Schoenstatt that feels called to apostolic work, that is, to helping people – concrete and real people – find the way to the Father. “We must walk with these two things that Jesus teaches us: truth and understanding.
