A Covenant Life in times of uncertainty
Like the first congregants in 1914, we want to give our YES in uncertain times.
By: Luciana Loyola P.
This 2020 will be the 106th anniversary of the first Covenant of Love, which was sealed by our Father and Founder Joseph Kentenich in a small chapel in Vallendar, Germany. How heroic were the first congregants, who even in times of war, fears, bombings, and anguish, decided to work on their self-sanctification and become entirely property of Mary. From that moment our Mother of Heaven has established herself in that place, which became her Shrine, to distribute abundant graces to thousands of people who visit her. Who would have believed that moment would be so remembered even after a century!
Our reality calls us to trust and to grow in our faith! In this current context of pandemic, disappointment, unemployment, injustice and human loss, we want to say our YES again to the will of our Father God. This is the war of this millennium and just like the first congregants, we must face this time of uncertainty and trust in the divine plan. What better way than by renewing our Covenant of Love! Let this 2020 be evidence that the storms bring us closer to God, and that even if we do not see the path clearly, we continue to walk with him.
#OurCovenant2020 is an invitation of Schoenstatt International to participate in this initiative with diverse ideas to grow in the spirit of the covenant. During 18 days we will prepare ourselves as an international Schoenstatt family by offering many contributions to the capital of grace from every corner of the world.
God knows our reality and values each contribution that we bring to the Original Shrine if it is born from the heart. Is time to present our voluntary contributions as offerings to our Mother Thrice Admirable and Queen of Schoenstatt and in this way to fervently take part in the renewal of our Covenant this 18.10.20. Every day you can register your Capital of Grace through our page, enter your intentions and we will give it to our Queen in the Original Shrine.
