Mariengarten Wayside Shrine Dedicated

October 18th, 2011 · No Comments

The Schoenstatt family gathered on Sunday, October 16, 2011 for the dedication of our Marian wayside shrine named Mariengarten.   The name Mariengarten has a rich history in the Schoenstatt movement.  German for Garden of Mary, the name reminds the family of a time when Fr. Joseph Kentenich was in solitary confinement during World War II.  Fr. Kentenich wrote to Sr. Mariengard and his Schoenstatt family that they could obtain his freedom by becoming “flourishing gardens” through their strivings for holiness.

With this new shrine at the Transfiguration Center in Ludlow Falls, Ohio we are confident that Mary is with us and that she desires to act as helpmate and educator in forming her children into the image of her Son.
