Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary

We consecrate ourselves in order to be more devoted to the Lord and His Blessed Mother. It helps us grow in holiness. It is a method of drawing closer to Jesus. It is a lifestyle of complete abandonment and entrusting ourselves to Mary's care, to offer ourselves more fully to Christ and be formed into "other Christ's."

Office of the Vicar General

Plenary Indulgence Granted to Schoenstatt

The International Schoenstatt Family wishes to share that as part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Schoenstatt work, our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has granted a Plenary Indulgence to all Schoenstatt Shrines throughout the world. This includes the Schoenstatt Shrine in Miami in the Archdiocese of Miami.

Below is part of the decree translated into English from Latin:

“The Holy Father grants a Plenary Indulgence under the usual conditions, to all members of the Schoenstatt Work and to other faithful who celebrate the jubilee, provided they are truly sorry for their sins and align their hearts with the spiritual goals of the Year of Faith. The prescribed conditions for gaining this indulgence apply (i.e., sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion, and prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father). This Plenary Indulgence can be granted from October 18, 2013 until October 26, 2014 if the aforementioned devoutly participate in any of the meditation and conclude with the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and invocations of the Three Times Admirable Mother, Queen and Victress. This indulgence can be granted during the specified period of time on any given day in Schoenstatt, on the scheduled jubilee days in Rome, and in all Schoenstatt shrines throughout the world.”
