Cathedral of St. Peter MTA Prayers

The Schoenstatt Illinois group at the Cathedral of St. Peter met October 1, 2014 to pray for the first time to Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt following the enthronement on September 27, 2014 in Mary’s Chapel.

Mother Thrice Admirable sent us a special gift – the presence of missionary priest, Fr. Peter Gevera, as we prayed for the growth of the Schoenstatt movement, for growth of Schoenstatt at the Cathedral, for the sainthood of our founder, Fr. Joseph Kentenich, for the soul of Susana Fernandez who started Schoenstatt at the Cathedral of St. Peter, and for the special intentions of all our Schoenstatt members.


MTA Enthronement at the Cathedral of St. Peter

On September 27, 2014, the Cathedral of St. Peter in the Belleville Diocese enthroned our Blessed Mother as Our Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt.

The Schoenstatt members of the Cathedral of St. Peter make a commitment to serve Our Mother Thrice Admirable (MTA) in our parishes.

Schoenstatt Day of Recollection on 9/26/14

Fr. Gerold Langsch presented a Day of Recollection at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Pierron, IL.  The focus was on Faith and the Schoenstatt commitment to Mary of “Nothing without you; nothing without us!”.

Faith through doctrine, devotion, and life is human cooperation with divine grace.  As we strive toward holiness, we ask:  What do I need to do to achieve holiness?  In Schoenstatt, living faith in daily life has a tool to help us grow concretely; it is called the Spiritual Daily Order.  It is our way of living the Covenant of Love and fulfilling our part of the commitment with Mary, “nothing without us”.

Besides these words of wisdom from Fr. Langsch, we celebrated the day with holy Mass, the rosary, Confession, and Benediction.  We are so blessed in Southern Illinois to have Fr. Langsch guide our spirituality!
