Your shrine is our Nazareth,
concealed in the night of our times.

Immaculate Virgin, you struggle there in prayer,
filled with longing for the dawn of salvation.
There Gabriel speaks God’s request
and your Fiat illumines the world.

Again I see you quietly speaking your Fiat
and see your light breaking through the night from Schoenstatt,
for God in his wisdom and mercy has chosen it
to be a bright beacon for the world of today.

Like you, let me always be faithful to the Blank Check
and fight the battle against the ancient dragon.
As your instrument let me always be ready to serve you
and joyfully dedicate my life to Schoenstatt’s mission.

Glory be joyfully given to the Father
through Christ with Mary, highly praised,
in the Holy Spirit full of splendor
from the universe now and in all eternity.

Schoentatt Office, Heavenwards

Father J. Kentenich
