Dear AZ Schoenstatt Family, “Mother with your loving son, bless us each and everyone!!”
Note from Sally: Greetings Dear AZ Schoenstatt Family,
Please read info below re. our mtg April 19. I thought I’d share these insights on the symbol of Father Kentenich’s “The wood carved Pelican,” which was above the main altar of Holy Cross Church, Milwaukee, WI. Father offered many Masses there (The Pelican is the symbol of Holy Eucharist). “In the five little ones we may see the five continents of the world.”
Father Kentenich said, “Yes, it is indeed true that the pelican who has held a place of honor in my room for so long….always was to me an example, and ideal, and a symbol”
Also, he said, “Observe how the big pelican completely gives himself to his little ones and how the little ones trustingly surrender to him. What a beautiful thing to behold! May this fact become quite self-understood to you also!”
Barb has graciously opened her home shrine MOTHER OF CONFIDENCE, to us all THIS Thursday, April 19. Rosary will begin at 9:45 sharp. All are welcome! (call Sally 4809456190 for address)
- Rosary – starting at 9:45
- Fellowship and “business” with healthy snacks (all are invited to share)
- book study
The booklets Sister Marie Day sent for us to study are on our motto this year, in preparation for celebrating our dear Father Kentenich’s 50th anniversary of death, Sept 15, 2018. Sally will have them available at the meeting for $3 for whomever wants to study with us. We truly love our founder and pray for his canonization, as he is a saint in waiting!
Please let Sally know that you’ve received this, and if you’ll make our mtg.
Planning – May
We’ll also discuss our group meeting at Thelma’s home shrine in May and the possibility of Fr. Ebbesmier celebrating MASS there!
Fr. Ebbesmier is a diocesan Schoenstatt Father, from St. Joachim and St. Anne Parish in Sun City, who made his Covenant of LOVE a few years ago in Jeanne’s home shrine. He’s very loving parish priest and said he’d celebrate Mass with us when we asked him.
I truly look forward to quality time with each of you.
Good night and JOY be to you all!
