Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother
With the main objective of evangelizing families and individuals, the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother, also known as the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign, reaches out to everyone, promoting Christian values and renewing the life of prayer in homes, schools, and wherever people search for God. As part of the Apostolic Movement of Schoenstatt, this apostolate is one of the most effective ways of making a reality the new evangelization needed in our modern times.
It began in Brazil in the year 1950, in the Schoenstatt Shrine of Santa Maria, Brazil. In 1976 it extended to other countries in South America. In the year 1985 for the centennial celebration of Father Joseph Kentenich’s birth (founder of Schoenstatt, 1885-1968) the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign was launched at an international level. Since then it has continued to spread through all continents with the same strength as it did at the beginning.
When the image of the Mother Thrice Admirable is blessed and sent out from the Schoenstatt Shrine, it is similar to Mary who went to visit her cousin Elizabeth bringing the presence of Christ with her. Mary, too, carries Christ into our homes, serves our spiritual needs, and works miracles by interceding for us before the throne of God.
In addition to encouraging the Rosary prayer, the apostolate of the Pilgrim Mother promotes our consecration to Mary. In Schoenstatt we do this through a covenant of love with Mary.
Today, we are invited to join in praying the Rosary
For our nation, for the integrity of our judicial system, and that all branches of government be dedicated to seeking the common good and protecting the dignity and rights of the human person, from conception to natural death.
For the overturning of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in the Supreme Court’s final decision in Dobbs v. Jackson.
For the conversion of the hearts and minds of those who advocate for abortion.
For a new commitment to building an America where children are welcomed, cherished, and cared for; where mothers and fathers are encouraged and strengthened; and where marriage and the family are recognized and supported as the true foundations of a healthy and flourishing society.
For Our Blessed Mother’s intercession and guidance as the Church continues to walk with mothers and families in need, and continues to promote alternatives to abortion, and seeks to create a culture of life.
