She spoke about the mother of a friend, Delia, and her commitment to Schoenstatt even in the Province of Corrientes … Yes, we indeed talked about “Delia of the Wayside Shrine”, who is remembered every year in Goya, along with her late husband, whenRead More
Bendición Casa de Cobijo
SPAIN, Soledad Menéndez and César Fernández-Quintanilla •  Life in Cuba today is a nightmare. A daily struggle for survival, with no prospect of change and for many with only one way out: to leave the country. Every day, thousands of Cubans try to escape this situation in different ways, some at the danger of their lives. Many arrive in Madrid. Without papers, without work, without money and often with a broken soul. Here they come into contact with Father Bladimir in very different ways. — Bladimir Navarro, Schoenstatt diocesan priest,Read More

Madonna am Waldrand
GERMANY, Renate Siebenkäs / Maria Fischer •  When I learned about storytelling and oral history in my communication studies and then was amazed to discover how Father’s communication concept is based on telling real stories, I had to think of the “story of the crooked apple tree” and the “story of the little leg” with which my grandfather used to tell us children about the world, events, and even such difficult realities as physical disabilities; exciting, personal, touching, and real. — Good journalism does not necessarily require events or interviews.Read More

Villa Devoto
ARGENTINA, Fr. Martín Clavijo • For several years, the parish of San Rafael in Villa Devoto, in whose parish church a picture of the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt was placed on May 31, has celebrated Masses for the novena of their patron saint in a corner of the neighborhood. Nothing spectacular: a crossroads, a small house with an open door, a neighbor who lends a small table and a tablecloth, another who brings a few benches…But isn’t it often the small, the most insignificant that is the origin ofRead More
ARGENTINA, María Fischer • “Mom, look who I found… the Blessed Mother!”. The voice message “breathes” amazement and emotion. A young man, son of a Schoenstatter from Buenos Aires, who has known the Blessed Mother since he was born, was on a three-day excursion with some friends in the Sierra of Córdoba, specifically on the Cerro Champaquí, the highest peak in that province, with an altitude of 2790 m. They entered a cave and… there she was. — He sent some photos and a video to his mother, and everythingRead More
