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.

Year of Faith Event

Year of Faith Event

You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you. St. Augustine

The Schoenstatt Movement is sponsoring a Year of Faith Event to give thanks for the graces of this special year and for the gift of our own personal story of faith.   A Movie and Dinner Night will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2013 featuring the movie, Restless Heart, the Confessions of Augustine, in English with Spanish subtitles.  It is the story of three saints and two doctors of the Church -- St. Augustine, St. Monica and St. Ambrose.  Restless Heart is the first full-length feature movie on St. Augustine, one of the Catholic Church’s most beloved and well-known saints.  Its message is still timely today, of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light – to conversion.
