Testimonies and Formation

Carlos & Elizabeth Cantú, TX

Carlos & Elizabeth Cantú have been working with the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign almost since its beginnings here in the USA, since 1986.  They share with us.

We moved from the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, which is in the Diocese of Brownsville to Austin, almost two years ago. Although we live in Austin, TX, we still work with 7 groups of missionaries which we started in the Diocese of Brownsville. We are in contact with them and try to visit each group once or twice a year.  You could say that we provide continued Schoenstatt formation for them. Not only did we prepare them to become missionaries, we also prepared them for their covenant of love. Several of them had their home shrines blessed as well. Altogether we have 11 groups we have in both dioceses, 4 are led in English and 7 in Spanish.

 In the Diocese of Austin, we are part of the leadership team for the Schoenstatt Pilgrim Mother.  We are currently providing Schoenstatt spirituality formation and covenant of Love preparation for four groups. Of course, with the current pandemic situation, everything is on hold. We are informing all of our groups about the 70th anniversary of the founding of this apostolate.

 Especially moving for us are the testimonies from the people who experience our Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen, and Victress of Schoenstatt in their homes. We also want to make John Pozzobon and his apostolate more known among those who receive the image.
