You may add names on a “star” which on Christmas Eve will be brought to the manger as a gift to the Christ Child in Schoenstatt, Germany. The Adoration Sisters, who pray in the Shrine of the Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt, will pray for the named “stars” in this Shrine during Schoenstatt’s jubilee year.
On Christmas Eve at 2 pm, a prayer service in the Original Schoenstatt Shrine will be transmitted live by schoenstatt.tv during which the “stars” will be offered. They then will be taken to the Holy Mass on Christmas Eve and finally brought to the Adoration Church where the Servant of God, Fr. Joseph Kentenich, has his final resting place.
You can also give this gift to as many people as you like, by filling out the form on www.urheiligtum.de web site or by writing and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
May Mary, Mother of Christ, intercede before her Child in all your needs and intentions. Above all, may Mary lead each one of us to a greater faith and love for her Child, our Redeemer!

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
