Dear Schoenstatt Family and Friends:
I would like to welcome you to the Schoenstatt Movement of Austin! In a few more days Pope Francis will open the Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy for Church. We too will join him here in the Shrine as we open this new Jubilee Year. This year the Shrine will become for many people a place where they will experience the mercy of God.
By its very nature the Shrine is a place that fosters encounter with God in prayer, in catechesis, and in the sacraments, especially in the Eucharist and in the Sacrament of Penance. In the Shrine we let ourselves be loved by Mary who as a mother shows us the mercy and compassion of a loving God. It is an invitation to experience the grace of inner transformation that allows us to strive for holiness. I invite you to join us each month during this Year of Mercy in the many different opportunities we will offer to celebrate this Holy Year.
I wish you many blessings from the Shrine.
Father Jesus Ferras, ISP
Movement Director and Rector of the Shrine
