ROME, Michael Gerber. The construction of the Schoenstatt Shrine in Belmonte, Rome, is in its final stages. The preparations of the festivities, as well - or should we better say, all are working at full stretch? The textbooks for the pilgrims are being printed these days ..., and already now, the texts can be downloaded at

These days, the workers are doing their best at the square in front of the Shrine, to the end of getting it ready to receive the so far more than 2,000 pilgrims from all over the world. Carpenters are working hard for the shrine - meanwhile, the door is ready and the Father Eye Symbol, gift of the Argentinean Schoenstatt Family, is already attached to the top part.

Celebrations at the Shrines and wayside shrines 

In Löffelstelzen in Southern Germany, the team in charge for the celebrations met to give the final touch to the texts of the celebrations - now ready in four languages: German, Spanish, English, and Italian. All the participants will recieve a textbook in one of these four main languages. All those who spiritually join from home, can do so and download the texts.

All are thereby invited to give a thought to the idea of joining in the celebrations, spiritually, with a parallel celebrations at the wayside shrines and Daughter Shrines on September 7 or 8. Thus, the Church could even more experience the stream of life and grace flowing from the networked shrines all over the world...

Long since the Schoenstatt family of Concepción del Uruguay, in Argentina, commited themselves to organize a parallel celebration at their wayside shrine. Please let us know where else celebrations will take place!

PressOffice Schoenstatt will literally "move" to Rome on September 6, with a team of 5 - to provide fast and vast covering of the events in Spanish, German, and hopefully English. Don't miss to have a look at these days.

Everybody of course is very welcome to join in via mail:
