"Make them ready for the Lord!"
Costa Rica: Preparing Children for First Holy Communion
(mkf) As a gift at the end of their preparation for their first Holy Communion, children of the "Escuela Británica" of San José in Costa Rica received a picture of the Blessed Mother , a copy of the picture in the Schoenstatt Shrines, the picture that many people in Costa Rica know from the Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign.
The Schoenstatt Movement in Costa Rica is young, small, apostolic and growing. Several ladies from the Schoenstatt group in San José worked as catechists for the students of the "Escuela Británica", a school in San José, and accompanied the children on their way to Jesus.
At the end of the two years of preparation, they wanted to give the children a special gift - Mary, whose task Father Kentenich describes in a prayer from Dachau: "In us walk through our word, make it ready for the Lord!" Their prayer: Mary, make them ready for the Lord!
"The joy in the faces of the children, when they held the picture of the Mater in their hands, was worth all the efforts," said Gonzalo Vega. "The Mater (Mother) must be very, very pleased today!"
