Happy Covenant Day!

18th Impulse - June 2023

Dear Schoenstatt Mothers and friends,
In this month where we celebrated Corpus Christi, a special liturgical day for the Living Monstrance, I wish you a blessed Covenant Day and Happy Father's Day! Today, I am with a small pilgrimage group of 15 persons and we are celebrating the Covenant Day in Schoenstatt, Germany right at the Original Shrine! We are uniting with all of you through our network of shrines whether you renew your covenant of love with our MTA at a home, wayside, or daughter shrine!

If you are interested in what we are doing the last days of our pilgrimage, here is the program. The whole pilgrimage began on June 7 and we flew to Munich so that we could visit Dachau where our father and founder, Father Joseph Kentenich showed courage and trust in our MTA in a difficult situation. On our pilgrimage, we remember all of you and your intentions in these holy places:

  • For blessings upon our pilgrimage to Schoenstatt/Dachau.
  • For all families with new babies coming into their lives.
  • For the Schoenstatt Pilgrim MTA convention to go well from June 22-25, 2023.

For your intentions ...

You know the way, you know the time. Into your hands we trustingly place them.
Your plan is born of perfect love. You know the way. That is enough.
Lift up your hearts with a few inspirations:

  • Founder Shrine Madison - 70 Year Dedication Day on June 20, 2023: Enjoy the overview video of the blessing the first Schoenstatt Shrine in the USA has brought to our country! From the Founder Shrine - Mother Thrice Admirable - form the American Saint!
  • Train Station Apostolate: Here is a fun story of an apostolate by several religious groups in Switzerland that the Schoenstatt Sisters joined. Maybe we can find creative ways to live our SEED project in this time of the Eucharistic Revival
Let us continue to unite in striving to be Christ bearers and Christ bringers as Living Monstrance during this summer time. Maybe take a little trip to the nearest Schoenstatt Shrine with someone who has never been to our place of grace. We want to continue to fill the capital of grace of our Mother Thrice Admirable so that the Eucharistic Revival in our country my be blessed. Lift up your hearts! Sursum Corda!

In Gratitude,
Sr. M. Deanne
