Greetings from the Confidentia Shrine,
We hope you are enjoying the summer and perhaps even a vacation! It is a great gift that we can travel and gather as families again as you may have done for the recent July 4th celebration. Above all, we are grateful that we are free again to gather in our churches for the Eucharist!
As Schoenstatt Family we are thankful for our priestly father and founder whose ordination to the Sacred Orders and first holy Mass we commemorated on July 8th and July 10th.
Every vocation in the Catholic Church is a self-gift of charity to God and the world. Priests are called in a special way to imitate Christ’s example of outpouring love and mercy. This essentially makes their leadership fruitful. In our shrines, let us pray for all young men discerning the priesthood. Let us also beg our MTA to lead many priests to our shrines and to the covenant of love. May we each be receptive to the open doors by introducing our parish priests to Schoenstatt.
In our Confidentia Shrine we pray that you have a peaceful and relaxing summer and for many and holy priests,
Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary
