Prayer Intentions

Spiritually in the Original Shrine in in our home and heart shrines we pray ...
  • For those caring for elderly parents
  • For Eucharistic Revival blessings for our Church and country
  • For those suffering from terminal illnesses.
  • For all people around the world who are affected by natural disasters
  • For young people to have the courage to make decisions out of prayerful discernment and courage to do God's will
  • For those seeking employment
  • For preparation of the Synod on Synodality in Rome
  • For those suffering from mental illness
  • 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.


If you are interested in joining in prayer of the universal Church for the Synod on Synodality, the Vatican is holding an Ecumenical Prayer Service on September 30, 2023. Maybe you will be inspired to have a creative way of how to pray for this intention in your home shrines and/or at adoration.
Here are three inspirational articles for you this month to lift up your hearts.
  • Meaning of the Unity Cross Today: Take a few moments to read about the significance of Schoenstatt's Unity Cross for people of today, reminding us of the commemoration of the Exaltation of the Cross on September 14.
  • Discovering God behind everything: A Schoenstatt Sister of Mary shares an article she was asked to contribute to a Vatican magazine. For Sr. M. Alena It is not I who strive for the dear God, but he strives for me.
  • Formation Day for Women in Australia: Learn what the Schoenstatt Movement is offering for women at the Schoenstatt Shrine near Sydney, Australia.
May our Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen, and Victress of Schoenstatt continue to surprise us with her gifts of love as we journey together on our covenant way. As Living Monstrance, my we bear Christ, bring Christ, and serve Christ in all people in our lives.

In Gratitude,
Sr. M. Deanne Niehaus
