Schönstatt - Begegnungen

Moment Mal ...

on the last day of work of this October Week …

What impressed you most? What do you take home from here?

 

Bernd Scheuermann

Schoenstatt Boys' Youth

I am still impressed with the apostolic initiatives. On this day I realized how much life we have in Schoenstattt. These fantastic things would need to be muchmore know and made public in Schoenstatt. Of course I had heard about the initiative for the protection of human embryos before and I am convinced that this was worth while to try. I also liked the theology of creation in Syliva Lorenz' statement. That these initiatives got a podium in the October Week – it's wonderful!

Sexuality is an important subject! Parents and youth are insecure how to handle the matter. We as Schoenstatt Mothers have a certain guideline, but the others ... It's all so vague. I also enjoyed Fr. Hagemann's sermon on the spirituality of unity a lot.

Schoenstatt Priests

This meeting showed me the universal Schoenstatt. The different participants mirrored this universality. The Church is universal, of course, but I think that Schoenstatt is the first mevemnt to pout that so clearly into practice. All that I heard is first of all, of course, applied to Germany and Europe, but I think also for Africa and the other countries it can be helpful. Through Father Kentenich's commitment and practically through the statement on apostolic initiatives I understood that the Church is not only responsible for theological issues but also for the protection of nature, the protection of human embryos, sexuality. The whole life of the human being is at stake and the church has something to say to all. I thank the Schoenstatt Movement for this testimony.

It is important that Schoenstatt becomes active and offers all the impulses and positive models that we have from Father Kentenich to others. I also liked the sermon of the Fokolar priesta lot.

 
 

Father Franz Brügger, Essen

My most impressive experience of the October Week 2001? It was family, an experience of family with sharing and listening.

As I work with families, I found Father Güthlein's talk very good and helpful. It is the beginning of a process: We have much more than we could pass on to others. Yesterday we experienced that we are able to do something, but we need to make sure that those who want to contributeto this get in contact and that we work our way into the public.

In conversation with the families I learnded how important the subject of human sexuality is for the them. In therapy and counseling all start from deficiency, from catastrophe. We could

maybe profoundly reflect and study and then see how it is put into practice – thus we could start a process. It is not only a certain lack of words, we are just at the beginning of a process.

I was really touched and moved when I heard that the Fokolar Movement got an invitation. I also liked the taök on sexuality and the general opennes.

 
 

Hans Muhle, Osnabrück

Family League

It is important to have worked in the subject of sexuality (on October 19, study day, editor) We can say that we live our marriage and our professional life 100% from what we heard in Schoenstatt. But had anybody asked me about Schoenstatt's position on sexuality I had not known. To me it is very positive that the issue is in process now. For us it would be helpful when the Fathers and Sisters would work out a clear guideline to help our youth in this difficult question.

 
 

Hildegard Muhle, Osnabrück

Family League

I don't quite agree – I think we did work on this subject also before, but not in such a profound way, and I am glad and grateful that we do it now.

Mothers' League

I enjoyed the presentation of the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary! The sharing about Fr Kentenich, these encounters marked by love. It makes me really sad to not have gotten to know him. Comment: But we can! He said to one of the sisters sent to Africa, she should write to him. But I would have liked to get to know him in person!
