Shrine Cookies Recipe

December 15th, 2008 · No Comments

The following incident occurred on October 27, 1962 when the golden jubilee of the Pre-Founding Document was celebrated. Fr. Kentenich was invited to come to a celebration with the leaders of the Schoenstatt Boys’ Youth. In his office Father had a box with 50 Shrine cookies and he sent Maria Kleimeyer to get them for him. Before distributing them, he explained that on the Feast of St. John when the priest gives blessed St. John’s wine to people, he says “Drink the love of St. John.” And so Father says: “Eat the love for the Shrine.”
