Blessed September 18th!

Greetings from the Confidentia Shrine! During the month of September we celebrate Our Lady’s birthday (Sept. 8), her holy name (Sept. 12), and today we reflect on her Seven Sorrows, which of course also reminds us of the day Schoenstatt’s founder, Father Joseph Kentenich was called into eternity in 1968. Today, we commemorate Schoenstatt’s founding.

July Sursum Corda Moments …

The pilgrimage in the footsteps of our father and founder on July 8 made me proud to belong to
Schoenstatt. The Corpus Christi Schoenstatt Family outdid itself in organizing every little detail. We were
given a booklet with the songs and prayers for the stops on our way. It also included detailed
information about Father Kentenich’s visit to Corpus Christi and I look forward to reading it when I get
home.  It touched me that at each place there was a life-size image of our father welcoming us and a
picture of the building as it looked back then. In addition, generous hands provided us with water
bottles which were welcomed by all. Last but not least, an exquisite and delicious banquet was waiting
for us at the end of the day so typical of our Schoenstatt hospitality. A heartfelt thank you to the Corpus
Christi Schoenstatt Family for a richly blessed day: sursum corda!
