PARAGUAY, Mónica Martínez, Cristhian Díaz and Bruno Díaz Martínez   • There is a very important date for all Schoenstatters. It is a day, Mother, that you made the most important one for my family, because you sent us the most beautiful gift the heavenly Mother can give: a son! It is not a coincidence that we belong to this Movement, and it is not a coincidence that you sent our little Bruno on 18 October 2013, when we expected him on 7 November. It is not a coincidence… From myRead More

USA, by Laura Schuckenbrock, Mothers’ Branch leader at St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish • One morning in March after daily mass and rosary, I was sitting with Blessed Mother in her little Wayside shrine of the Annunciation at St Gabriel’s. I looked at her and said: “Blessed Mother, we love you so much and this little garden does not reflect all the love we have for you here at St. Gabriel’s.” What would you like dear Mother? Inspire me, and I will do it. Dear Father and Founder, you wereRead More
USA, Carlos Cantú • Indeed, an auspicious occasion took place on December 12, 2015, at the Confidentia Shrine and Schoenstatt Center in Rockport/Lamar, Texas.

The bishop asked Father Kentenich to send Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary to work in his diocese. On Father Kentenich’s return through South Africa, he asked threeRead More

This 1 November, the October Day celebration was also held in conjunction with the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign ofRead More

USA, Texas, by Carlos Cantú • The Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary came to work in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas – which was then a part of the Diocese of Corpus Christi – in 1959.
