Queen of Unity
June 20 – August 22, 2021
In Spirit I kneel before your picture, Thrice Admirable, strong and gentle Mother,
united with all who have consecrated themselves to you and are ready to die for your realm.
We want to mirror ourselves in your image and seal our covenant of love anew. Make us, your instruments,
like you in everything and through us build Schoenstatt everywhere (Heavenwards).
Week 6 – We are One in God
(July 25 – 31, 2021)
Only the power of God can bring about a new creation, the miracle of renewal, and with that, the fulfillment of our mission in these new times. God uses instruments to accomplish his goals. He called Mary in the fullness of time to help bring Christ to our world. Today, God also needs instruments who are ready to become one heart and one soul in his essence, in his love. These instruments will be useful to the extent that they are children, to the extent that they find their home in God.
When the self becomes so united with God that both concepts of home flow together, the human being has found a home in the true sense of the word. Then we are truly, deeply at home (Fr. Kentenich, Forming the New Person, 1951).
In reverence before God’s work in the life of others, we stand in charity before all as a gift for our Queen of Unity.
We pray from the Heavenwards, the Prayer for the International
… accept our humble veneration and look on
our readiness to go to battle.
We present to you the nations living here
who share with us the fate of exile.
Be their+ Mother and their Queen! May they return home transformed—a firm guarantee
for peace among the nations++ and for unity in
the City of God on earth.
Through our striving we want to replace the
love and faithfulness they deny you
through their flight from the cross of Christ.
We want to live for you and your work alone.
Rule over us as pleases God and make us
the salt and leaven of the world.
Let us become one heart and one soul as
Our Lord implored during his earthly life
and despite each individual way remain
united, dedicating ourselves to the Father
as an ideal kingdom and overcoming all
barriers of nationality even when hate
infests the masses of the nations.
Increase the numbers and depth of our family
and use us as your instruments forever.
May we fulfill the great mission which you
have implored for us in accordance with
the Father’s will. Amen.
