Schoenstatt Shrines

In the Schoenstatt Shrine, the Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt has innumerable graces to give to her children who seek for her powerful intercession. Since October 18, 1914, the MTA has shown that she has three special graces that she wants to share with her devotees.

Being at home

The first grace we receive in the Schoenstatt Shrine is the grace of being at home. Mary, with her child in her arms, waits for us to teach us how to become children and thus how to find our home in the heart of God.

you!” In her shrine, she waits for us, like an educator, wanting to give us the grace to do what our Lord asks us to do.

Inner transformation

This is the second grace we receive in the Schoenstatt Shrine, the grace of inner transformation, of being able to embrace our cross each day with a new attitude, with a Christian attitude and spirit. Mary, in the wedding at Cana, directs our attention to any of such admonitions from our Lord, when we hear her say: “Do whatever he tells you!” In her shrine, she waits for us, like an educator, wanting to give us the grace to do what our Lord asks us to do.

Apostolic Zeal

This is the third grace we receive in the Schoenstatt Shrine, the grace of apostolic fruitfulness, the grace to share with
others, by our
words and deeds, the effect of God’s presence in our lives. Mary, with her child in her arms, wants to gather us into the fold of the fruitful and daring apostles, who embraced the call of our Lord.

Testimony

Experiences of the Shrine

Annette from Canada and Ana Victoria from Mexico had been staying at the International Schoenstatt Center for a few months and had been blessed to be so close to the shrine. We invite you to visit any of the Schoenstatt Shrines in the USA or around the world and receive the graces the Blessed Mother has for you there.
