St. Michael the Archangel


Meditation by Pilar Huerta

Words of our founder, Fr. Joseph Kentenich 

“What is the significance of St. Michael in our Family history?  We do see him in all our shrines in a prominent place.  How did he get there?  Firstly, we took into account in old tradition, yes, actually an historical fact.  From the very beginning, the small chapel had been dedicated to St. Michael.  That is why he came to be in the chapel, in our shrine.  But right at the start of our Family history, from that moment on, when we gave him a place there, we interpreted his mission thus:  He should be the guardian of the Blessed Sacrament.  That was the first conscious motive.  Later this motive was expanded.

Franciscus vir catholicus et totus apostolicus

Francis, a catholic and totally apostolic man

By Pilar Huerta

Meditative prayer—Peace prayer of St. Francis of Assisi (Feast Day October 4)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. 

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  Amen.

2023 Pilgrimage for Couples to Wisconsin

Upcominig information about a pilgrimage to Wisconsin

75 years ago Father Kentenich visited the US for the first time. Then from 1952-1965 he lived in Milwaukee. Join us in exploring the history of this time, especially our founder's encounters with families and the birth of the home shrine.

June 4 - 7, 2023

We will lodge at the International Schoenstatt Center in Waukesha, WI and make trips to the first Schoenstatt Shrine on US soil in Madison as well as to the exile shrine in Milwaukee. We will also meet people who have encountered Father Kentenich during his time in Milwaukee. 

Transportation to Waukesha is on your own. Childcare cannot be provided; but if you bring along a friend or relative they are welcome to make their own program.

More information will be available soon! To make reservations, please contact Sr. M. Danielle at 361-55-3146

70th Anniversary Celebration of the Rosary Campaign

b2ap3_thumbnail_Pozzobon-70th-anniv_20200727-210215_1.jpgIn the Holy Year of 1950, John Pozzobon, a member of the Schoenstatt Movement in Santa Maria, Brazil, received a picture of the Mother Thrice Admirable. It was suggested to him that he take this MTA picture into the homes of many people. He accepted this idea as a holy task and special mission.

For 35 years Pozzobon took the MTA on pilgrimage in Southern Brazil. He walked a total of more than 87,000 miles and brought the picture of our Lady of Schoenstatt to a different family each day. He carried the picture in a shrine-shaped frame weighing over 25 pounds. He went from home to home, into schools, prisons, and hospitals. Pozzobon would gather people together and pray the rosary with them; together they begged for the renewal of families and individuals, for the special pilgrimage graces from the shrine and the picture of grace, and for Mary’s intercession for all their needs. Pozzobon’s pilgrimage began each day with a visit to the Schoenstatt Shrine in Santa Maria and holy Mass. Each day he renewed his covenant of love and received the necessary strength to carry out his mission with zeal.

On September 10, 2020, we will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the birth of the Rosary Campaign During the remainder weeks up to that date, we want to unite in prayer and renew ourselves in our commitment with this apostolate.

The missionaries in San Antonio have prepared a beautiful pin in commemoration of this event. If someone would like to purchase it the contact information is: Edna Salas This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

On Thursday, July 16 we will unite in praying the novena inspired in the life of John Pozzobon: A Hero Today Not Tomorrow. We will pray for nine weeks. The last day will be September 10, 2020.

On September 10, 2020, the International Center in Waukesha, WI will offer the following program: 9 AM Pacific Time = Holy Mass; 3 PM Pacific Time = Documentary about John Pozzobon's life; 6 PM Pacific Time = Lighted Rosary by the Schoenstatt Shrine in Waukesha, Wisconsin. (THE LINKS AND PRAYERS WILL BE SENT LATER ON.)

During this pandemic, and as long as we need to, we want to use caution while at the same time encourage one another in building community in different ways from what we have done in the past.

Since Texas is still not rotating the pilgrim MTA, we should consider establishing times with missionaries to pray the Rosary together via phone or online (google meet, etc.) Recommendation: Every 18th of the month & renew Covenant of Love.
