MTA on the Move!

April 1st, 2011

Today a new initiative began at the Transfiguration Center with the Pilgrim MTA.  On First Friday’s the Schoenstatt family gathers at the Center for a morning of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.  We have a large Pilgrim MTA in the room during the service but this particular MTA has never traveled.  Generally, we send out smaller versions to the homes but today we decided to send out our Mother on a special mission.  Here’s a picture of the MTA going forth until she returns on May 6th for our next time of prayer.

Blessing of Wayside Shrine and Leaders

October 20th, 2010

It was a joyous occasion for those who gathered for the blessing of our new Schoenstatt Wayside Shrine on the grounds of the Transfiguration Center in Ludlow Falls, Ohio.  On October 18, 1914, Fr. Joseph Kentenich gave a talk to some seminarians in his care. He invited Mary to come and dwell in a particular place, a small inconspicuous chapel, to form and educate some young men to be “firm, free, priestly personalities”. The seminarians in exchange would give her their hearts, minds, work, and lives.  The place was Schoenstatt, Germany.

Yesterday, on the anniversary of this founding talk by Fr. Kentenich, members of the Ohio Schoenstatt family gathered to ask Mary to make this “little place” a place of grace.  A place where all who gather may know of Mary’s constant care and her desire to help us on the pathway to heaven.  A beautiful point of the ceremony occurred when Curtis Kneblik presented the “Cana Jar” which had been used to collect all the “Contributions to the Capital of Grace” as well as petitions over the past year.  The jar was absolutely full, and these petitions and contributions were offered up to our MTA by burning them in a fire.

At the close of the liturgy, after the blessing of the shrine, Mike Schubert recognized Carol and Gordon Lis for the 25 years of leadership to the Schoenstatt movement in Ohio.  A prayer of blessing was offered to Curtis Kneblik as the new Diocesan Leader for Ohio with his wife Tracy by Fr. John MacQuarrie.

Wayside Shrine Work Continues

September 8th, 2010

Feast of the Nativity of Mary - September 8, 2010

Here is a view of the wayside shrine today at Transfiguration Center. Charlie and Bob are seen here beginning the work of attaching the cupola which is the top portion of the belltower. Yes, we also have a brass bell which will be installed which I’m sure will be the most popular aspect for the kids that visit the shrine.

Mark continues his work on the stone walkway and it’s coming along nicely. Thanks for all your contributions, I know many of you are starting to feel a real attachment to this “little shrine” as am I.
