Special moments in a special Advent

No corona pandemic can stop special moments. Two such moments took place in the Pilgrim Church in the past few days

Digital hostel search

It is now a good tradition that the St. Remigius Provost Church's search for a hostel begins on the 1st of Advent in the Pilgrim Church. From there, Maria, Joseph and the donkey Elias hike to another place every day and find inns in kindergartens, families and institutions such as the juvenile court, the town hall, etc. The route was planned for this year too and the holy couple could meet look forward to a safe hostel every evening.

The second lockdown changed the usual way of looking for a hostel, but new ways were found, mostly digitally. When it was certain that because of the large number of visitors who were about to open the hostel search, it could not take place in the usual way in the Pilgrim Church, a man from the preparation team said spontaneously: “Then we'll do it digitally in the chapel. Because this is a special place, a sanctuary. "

The recording took place there a few days before the 1st Advent. Safety distance, open windows and wide open door. As a sign of inner solidarity, a candle was lit that burns in the Pilgrim Church Chapel during the Advent weeks. When the time finally came on the 1st of Advent, there were over 2000 hits on Facebook. So many visitors would never have fit in the Church of the Annunciation!

A very special rose

A second special moment is a rose, more precisely the "rose peregrina." A project was presented at a pilgrimage workshop for Jacob pilgrims in Westphalia, to which the LWL invites every year to Münster. Dr. Norman Sinclair from Venezuela, who has lived in Germany for many decades, planted this rose in several places on the Jacobsweg between Osnabrück and Münster, which he brought back from Spain for the first time in 2018. This meeting made contact with the Pilgrim Church. When he was asked whether he would like to give such a rose to the Blessed Mother at the Pilgrim Church Shrine in Ohio (because here too the Jacobsweg passes), he immediately agreed.

The day came on December 1st. Because of the lockdown, the number of participants was very limited. Norman Sinclair brought the rose to the chapel first and prayed. After that, it was planted in the prepared hole. "Every rose that I plant is stamped," he said with a smile and takes two stones from his pocket that he brought from the Jacobsweg. A special rose for a special place. Just like that, as a gift, in the middle of the corona pandemic.

Inner drives - the great opportunity for our personal training

Developing your own personality - who wouldn't want that? However, we also know the experience that sometimes the resolutions to do so make you tired rather than help you. How do I stay motivated to tackle this? A big goal in mind is one thing; Addressing the energy that is naturally within me is the other. For what I plan to find a suitable word, a formulation that meets my inner driving forces - that is the exciting challenge and at the same time the great opportunity for my personal training. So it's good to know: What driving forces do I have in me? Which currents are driving me? And what does “PE” (particular examination) mean in this context? These are questions that we are investigating in this video.

"Thank you for your appointment"

Sr. M. Anke said goodbye to the Münster family movement

On Saturday, August 29, 2020, Sister M. Anke Rechtien was adopted as the family sister of the diocese of Münster. Numerous members of the family movement gathered in the Pilgrim Church in Ohio to thank them warmly for the past time.

"Look at your calling!"

In a Marian mass, Father Werner M. Kuller gave an impressive invitation to invite Our Lady into the house, into the home shrine, so that she could work there. “How does Our Lady work on the home shrine? It works with us and through us. That is the originality of Pilgrim Church. ”Mary lived her vocation to the full: she brought Jesus to Elisabeth, and she still brings Jesus to the people today. When the apostle Paul asks in the reading to the Corinthians to look to one's own calling, this contains fourfold requests, each one's own To recognize your calling, to accept it with determination and to feel at home within, to live your own calling and to do something for it in everyday life and finally to let the calling work and radiate. Addressing Sister M. Anke, P. Kuller concluded: "Thank you for your calling as a sister and for your service to the families!"

Made the phone glow

In the hour that followed, the diocesan leader family Marigrete and Ansgar Imwalle said goodbye to Sr. M. Anke with a look back at four years of fruitful work. “All our works are more fruitful if we do them with a happy heart!” This saying from Fr Kentenich would suit her so well because her joy and positive attitude are simply contagious. When exactly four years and one day ago she was welcomed as the successor of Sr. Mariatheres Weinberg, she immediately started to make contacts, to address families and to invite them. "You made the phone glow and the email lines run hot!" A new management team was only found in January 2018 and the work could be put on several shoulders again. Together with her, the work with the 50+ generation was reorganized, and many offers for young families were added. With her keen eagle eye, she was always on the lookout for undiscovered talents. In this way, the group of employees could be continuously expanded. She stubbornly pursued the idea of ​​offering a marriage preparation seminar, which was held in Ohio for the first time in 2019. The Münster family movement let them go with heavy hearts. The families expressed their thanks with a flower each for Sr. M. Anke, on each of which was a greeting card, so that at the end a large, colorful bouquet illustrated this thanks.

The red bag

When she looked back on her time as a family sister in Münster, Sr. M. Anke reached deep into the large red bag that she had brought with her. From this she gradually drew photos of the initiatives, circles and groups that she had been able to accompany and support over the past four years. She then gave such a small bag to all families as thanks for the common journey and as encouragement to continue working. During an evening snack in the cafeteria, there was then the opportunity - with the necessary distance - to talk to each other.

Sr. M. Anke Rechtien is moving to Pilgrim Church and will take over responsibility for the sister branch in the Provincial House of the Dynamic Province in Marienland on Berg Pilgrim Church from September 9, 2020. In the future, Sr. M. Gertraud Evanzin will support the family movement in the dioceses of Münster and Cologne.

Thank you for existing!

60 years of the Pilgrim Church Shrine in Ohio

How time flies. 60 years ago, more precisely on September 11, 1960, the Provincial House of the Pilgrim Church Sisters of Mary and the chapel were inaugurated. Some people from Borken and Gemen still vividly remember how construction work began in 1956 “in Becking”.

Before that, the provincial house of the so-called "Northern Province" was in Maria Rast, near Euskirchen, near Cologne. This house soon became too small and the sisters were looking for a new place that would be in the center of the province. The choice fell on Ohio. The sisters were no strangers here. As early as 1953 they opened a secondary school for girls in private premises. Father Josef Kentenich, the founder of the international Pilgrim Church Movement, was in the Münsterland as early as the 1920s and held a theological course for priests in the Franciscan monastery in Gemen.

In the meantime, the Pilgrim Church, whose center is the small shrine, has become an integral part of the region. Worldwide there are over 200 faithful replicas of the so-called Original Shrine, the first Pilgrim Church Shrine near Vallendar near Koblenz. “I'm coming because of the atmosphere here,” someone says. “For us, the chapel has become a place of refuge during the Corona period,” is how a couple describes their relationship with the small chapel. Quickly light a candle, let Maria look at you and drive down. Experience that God wants to meet you in the middle of everyday life. In the past few months of the Corona crisis in particular, people discovered the chapel for themselves. The 388 roses that were given in the last two weeks of the month of May during the “A Rose for Mary” campaign are a testimony to this.

Normally, the festival of the encounter, which has been taking place on August 15th since 2013, the feast of the Assumption of Mary into heaven, would have celebrated the chapel's 60th birthday. The Corona regulations call for a creative solution.
That is why there will be a very special festival week from August 9th to 18th, 2020, to which everyone who feels connected to the Pilgrim Church Shrine is invited. The following offers and activities take place around and in the sanctuary:

08/10/2020 7:30 p.m. Rosary lights (with registration)
August 12th, 2020 7:00 p.m. Pilgrimage from the Mother of Good Advice to the Pilgrim Church Shrine
08/18/2020 7:30 p.m. St. Mass with renewal of the alliance with Mary (with registration)
The pontifical office with Bishop Overbeck, Essen, will take place on August 15, 2020 in a smaller group.

In the sanctuary itself there are the following offers throughout:

"A rose for Maria"
There are roses in the back of the chapel. When visiting the chapel, a rose can be purchased for a small donation. The rose is placed in a vase in the chancel. The sisters are happy to pray for the concerns of all those who give Mary a rose.
(This promotion ends on September 15, 2020 with a small party at 6:00 p.m.)

Holy water "to go"
The holy water fonts in the churches have been dry since the beginning of the Corona crisis. The small filled bottles of holy water to take away encourage you to revive the old Catholic custom in the apartments. In this way, too, we can take home the blessing of God that has emanated from the Pilgrim Church Shrine for 60 years. Consecrated water can be bottled in the anteroom of the Annunciation Church.

House of open doors, but not open doors

Many couples would like to have more time just for themselves during the holidays. But this is often difficult, especially at this time, because the children are always part of the life together. But this “time for two” is important for couples in order to “tie new meshes in the lifelong network of relationships”, says Father Elmar Busse in the new edition of the married couple newsletter from Pilgrim Church. In this situation, the author wishes the couples that parents, in-laws or friends look after the children at least once and that they can find exclusive time for each other.

Allegations of abuse against Father Kentenich

The theologian and church historian von Teuffenbach accused the founder of the community of Pilgrim Church Sisters of Mary of systematic abuse of power and sexual abuse in one case in an article in the "Tagespost" based on previously unevaluated Vatican documents. The General Presidium of the International Pilgrim Church Association rejects this. These allegations were already clarified during the time of exile and before the start of the beatification process of Father Josef Kentenich, for which the Vatican certified the declaration of no objection and issued the "Nihil obstat" before its opening. If allegations had not been clarified in this sense, they would never have given them.

“If the need is great, the children come to their mother to find help.
If the need is too great, the mother rushes to the children. "

The “A rose for Maria” campaign has started

It has been a tradition for years in the Pilgrim Church: the rose procession at the end of the May month. Since the solemn end of May is not possible this month, we have thought of something else. The “A Rose for Maria” campaign.

This campaign is also taking place at other Pilgrim Church Centers across Germany. The declaration on the initiative says: women are happy about flowers. Maria is a woman and she is mother - our and my mother. May has been the month of Mary for many centuries. The best opportunity to give her a rose (or flowers) and tell her: It's good that you exist. That you exist for me and that I can come to you with anything: with my concerns, with my thanks, with my story and with the people who belong to me. This rose can stand for all of this and above all as a sign for myself. Our roses - we ourselves - adorn your picture this year. "

From now on, roses are available in the back of the chapel in the Pilgrim Church. When visiting the chapel, a rose can be purchased for a small donation. The rose is placed in a vase in the chancel. The sisters are happy to pray for the concerns of all those who give Mary a rose.

If you want to give Maria a rose - for yourself or for loved ones, and cannot come in person, call 02861-923-0. If you want to make a small donation, you can use the following bank details: IBAN DE10 7509 0300 0002 1848 69 BIC GENODEF1M05 Purpose: Rose for Maria

Stop by for a moment and gain strength

Normally, the May month in the Pilgrim Church is very different. This year Archbishop would em Dr. Werner Thissen came to the opening of the month of Mary on April 30th and stayed there for the motorcycle blessing on May 1st. At the end of May, the Borkener wind instruments helped shape the festive May end. However, due to the safety precautions in the corona crisis, such events and the daily May devotions are not possible for the public, nor are the daily church services.

But one thing will work again from May 1st: a visit to the newly renovated Pilgrim Church Chapel. “Our chapel is the heart of our center”. It will be 60 years old this year. That is how long the Pilgrim Church Sisters of Mary have been living “in Becking”. The small chapel is visited by all sorts of people. "Couldn't you let the door of the chapel open?", Says Mr. S., who regularly makes laps with his dog and comes past the chapel. “I can also pray through the closed door, but it's different and you can tell that you are welcome.” Or the woman who regularly visits the Pilgrim Church Shrine on Sundays. Now she sits on the bench in the sun and hands the sister who comes by an envelope: € 5 for a rose for Our Lady. Just like that, out of gratitude.

The many candles that people have lit in the chapel speak for themselves, especially in times of Corona. If you want, you can take a small picture of Mary with you to take home. "Even though not much is possible with us at the moment, but the chapel is open - and that is the main thing."


Sticking together in difficult times

Going for a walk can be encouraging

The Pilgrim Church Sisters of Mary came up with something special during this Corona period. On the cobblestones of the so-called Birken-Allee, which leads to the center, sisters have written encouragement sentences from their founder, Father Josef Kentenich. "We thought we would like to pass on some of the words that have become important to us and to many people, especially in times of crisis." The founder (1885-1968) wrote encouragement sentences for people during his lifetime. Often a sentence like this hit the heart right.

Why shouldn't it be the same today? “We wish that to the strollers who come by us.” At the same time, the campaign should be a sign with which the Sisters of Mary want to express: “We take people's concerns with us into prayer. We don't forget them. "

Here are two samples of the encouragement sayings:
“Be what you are. Be it in the best possible form! "And:
"My only worry must be: to be endlessly carefree every second."
How long to read the proverbs? "Until the next rain"!


Opened again!

The religious art and bookshop will be open again from April 20, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Closed on sundays.

Wir sind für Sie da!

Viele Menschen kommen gerne in die Schönstatt-Au. Aufgrund der Situation ist das gerade nicht mehr möglich. Trotzdem sind wir für Sie da. Von 13:00 Uhr – 17:00 Uhr beten wir im Schönstatt-Kapellchen in besonderer Weise für alle Menschen, die uns ihre Anliegen anvertraut haben. In einem kleinen Ordner werden die Sorgen, die telefonisch oder schriftlich an uns gegeben wurden, notiert. So hat jede Schwester, die für eine halbe Stunde einen Gebetsdienst übernommen hat, die Möglichkeit, die Gebetsanliegen zu lesen und konkret dafür zu beten. Sie sind herzlich eingeladen, uns Ihre Anliegen mitzuteilen unter:
02861 – 923 0 oder [email protected]
