A YEAR DEDICATED TO FATHER KENTENICH
In 2018 we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of our father and founder, Father Joseph Kentenich (1885-1968). We invite you to a Father Kentenich Year starting on September 15, 2017 and ending with the 50th anniversary of his passing away on September 15, 2018. Let us focus on our father and founder for one year: on his thinking and message, on his interesting biography, and on the answers he has given to the challenges of the Church and the world [which he still] wants to give through us today. This year gives us the opportunity to deepen our relationship to Father Kentenich, so that his charism can be reawakened in us. Let us invite many people to meet Father Kentenich for the first time or to rediscover him as a prophet for our time (General Praesidium, Pentecost, 2017). (schoenstattrosarycampaign.com)
God our Father, In Father Kentenich you have given us a father and a prophet, a witness and a herald of your message for our time, enkindled by the Holy Spirit. Give us of his fire. Give us of his founder spirit. Let his charism be so alive in us that we can shape the future of the Church and society. May his vision be our vision: In the power of the covenant of love, a new world is to arise – a world in which people form a covenant culture wherever they live and work. Father in heaven, we ask you: Accept Father Kentenich into the company of the saints recognized by the Church. Open the door to him and his mission everywhere so that he can guide many people on the way to the fullness of life, the way to you. We ask this of you, in communion with Mary, our Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen, and Victress of Schoenstatt, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
