Fr. Rafael Fernandez visited us in November 2013
He was invited by Fr. Jesus Ferras and by our diocesan community.
He gave talks about P. Kentenich and his pedagogy .
We are very grateful for his visit.
El chileno, P. Rafael Fernández, nos visitó en noviembre
El P. Rafael es uno de los autores más renombrados del mundo de Schoenstatt. Ha interpretado al P. Kentenich como pocos, y ha conectado esa realidad maravillosa de nuestro fundador con la época actual. Es el fundador de la Editorial Patris, y ha escrito cientos de libros.
Hemos tenido el honor de recibirlo entre el 14 y el 18 de noviembre en Washington, DC, donde dio numerosos talleres, conferencias y charlas. Su visión es muy profunda e inspirado en el P. Kentenich y su filosofía, pedagogía, sicología y teología, da respuestas muy acertadas a las necesidades del mundo y del hombre de hoy.
¡Gracias P. Rafael por su maravillosa visita!
FATHER EYE SYMBOL FROM ORIGINAL
SHRINE IN DC
September 2013 - Report
This year, we were very blessed with the visit of the Father Eye Symbol. Its pilgrimage brought many graces and blessings to the entire Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. The Schoenstatt family was well prepared to receive the visit of the Father Eye symbol for the Original Shrine. We prayed the Novena for the Visit “Celebrating Fatherhood” in all the groups of the Movement, and the Rosary Campaign, and we played Fr. Langsch' DVD in every meeting in order to get everyone ready for this visit.
On Tuesday, September 17, we went to the Shrine of Light in Staten Island, New York to pick up the Father Eye Symbol. Sister Iraida accompanied us on this beautiful journey. We left Staten Island on our Covenant Day, Wednesday, September 18th. Our first stop in Washington DC was at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, where we had special permission to place the picture of the Blessed Mother and the Father Eye symbol at the crypt church. Members of the Schoenstatt Family were awaiting our arrival. We prayed the Rite of the Novena, and Sister Iraida gave us a talk.
The second stop was at the White House. The picture of the Blessed Mother and the Father Eye symbol were placed at the front of the White House, and we took pictures. There we prayed the prayer that is in the novena booklet for the renewal of our country, for the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness asking God to guide all the government authorities in every country. From there we went to the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, in downtown Washington, D.C., where we had our Covenant Mass with the picture of the Blessed Mother and the Father Eye symbol. It was a beautiful celebration. The Mass was offered for the Schoenstatt Movement in Washington, D.C. and the United States, asking God to help us to be able to one day fulfill our Father and Founder's dream to have a Schoenstatt Shrine in Washington, D.C. Then, we ended up at the Schoenstatt Place, on 14th Street where we sang songs and prayed.
On Thursday, September 19, we started the pilgrimage visiting the Home Shrines of the different Schoenstatt families in the area of Maryland and in Virginia. On Friday, September 20, we visited the international institution Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), where we had a good gathering. The Schoenstatters at the Bank had prayed also the Novena before the visit, and we met some new people that expressed the desire to know more about Schoenstatt. We also had a talk from Sister Iraida where she explained the meaning of the visit for us and the desire of our Founder to have God the Father as the center of our lives. The Father Eye Symbol was also present with the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign where at a gathering 60 Schoenstatters were present on Friday evening.
On Saturday, September 21, we started the day with the visit of the Father Eye symbol to the Diocesan Committee and the Schoenstatt Corporation. We prayed, and reflected on our mission in the area, we talked about our commitment with the Diocesan Committee and Corporation, and our goal toward building a Shrine in Washington, D.C.
We visited Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, the first parish that opened the doors to the Schoenstatt Movement in Maryland. Fr. Michal Sajnog prayed with us the Rite. The picture of the Blessed Mother and the Father Eye symbol were at the front of the church, and after that the Rosary Campaign had a meeting with the company of the Father Eye.
The visit of the Father Eye Symbol to our area was very
meaningful. We feel so blessed and enriched with spirituality,
our Founder wanted for the Schoenstatt Family to be close to God
the Father, and now we understand why. We need to hear God when
He speaks to us, we need to be open when God speaks to us, we
need to be silent in order to be able to listen to God, we need
to pray, and we need to be childlike.
