Queen of Unity

Nine-Week Novena

June 20 – August 22, 2021

Opening Prayer:

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.


Closing Prayer:

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.
