Goal: “Under the protection of
Mary, we want to learn to educate ourselves to become firm, free, and priestly personalities.”
1. Under the protection of Mary - she has special care for us and we recognize that
help is indispensable;
3. we want to learn to educate ourselves –
we desire for self education’
4. to become firm – that our lives are built
on the solid principles;
5. free – we want to freely choose to “
row for God “ with a proper sense of human dignity and obedience;
6. and priestly personalities – our striving
is for holiness.
“Mary, our mother and queen is the perfect example of the
new type of man; by modeling ourselves on her will come closer to the new ideal type of man. But she is more than our model.
She helps form the new type of man. Through her intercession and her formative activity of grace she will see to it that we
are more and more transformed”
The Schoenstatt spirituality is characterized by:
an active belief in divine providence (to be with and in GOD);
a covenant of love with the Mother of GOD (for self-education);
and by Christian responsibility for the world (as "apostles', instrument and missionaries of the Lord of the
harvest Jesus Christ)
