September 22: Covenant Renewal – We will start at 1:00 p.m. in the Founder Shrine followed by a short reflection presented in the Family Room.
As we embark on this providential path of the new schedule for the Covenant Renewal at the Founder Shrine and various other changes, we invite you to focus this Lenten journey on the primary covenant demand:
“Diligently bring me contributions to the capital of grace.”
From the Covenant of Love in Daily Life, p. 13, the following gives great hope and impetus to keep striving and offering our contributions to our Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen, and Victress of Schoenstatt:
“Schoenstatt has come about through the covenant of love, which is realized in practical life through contributions to the capital of grace. The means which brought Schoenstatt into existence will also keep it in existence forever. The shrine will cease to be a place of grace as soon as we stop making contributions to the capital grace. These contributions give life to Schoenstatt; they generate the flow of grace from the Shrine and guarantee the effectiveness of the movement.”
As a Lenten striving we invite you to print out the “capital of grace” slips at this link and place them into your home shrine. Let these be your “pebbles” (see explanation from Christmas Party 2019) to be offered for the church. Daily write your offerings on these slips and gather them into your home shrine. We invite you to bring these offerings to the Schoenstatt shrine and place them in the clay jar.
Like Father, dare to offer ourselves for the Church!
