With heartfelt greetings from our shrine, on this covenant day, we share our new motto with everyone!
The group of leaders gathered at the Schoenstatt Retreat Center for the Leaders' Convention, October 12-14, 2018, have also decided to pray the motto at the time of morning prayer each day, and to think of a practical way in which we may dare reach out to someone or be of service to the Church -- starting with small things.
Through Schoenstatt may the wide halls
of the holy Church be filled again
and your praise resound to your throne.
You may use us for your work
and send us crosses, suffering and hardship;
whether we meet with failure or success
we want to proclaim your love.
May what you have foreseen for us
be realized in every moment of our lives.
We have but a single longing:
Lead us according to your wise plans.
(Morning Consecration, Heavenwards)
