The torch runners have been preparing for this moment for the past 2 years… now the time has come!
The Torch Run (Fackellauf) will begin on October 8th. Pope Francis will light the torch at the end of the General Audience.
The 86 runners are about to live great moments: The audience with Pope Francis, the sending out from Pompeii, the encounter with the people from the place, the celebration in Freiburg, the arrival in Schoenstatt during the vigil on October 17th. Let us support their journey with our prayers!
You can watch the starting out of these young men as they enter Schoenstatt’s second century. The runners will keep an updated blog, which you can find here: www.fackellauf2014.org. Here they will share their experiences with us. You can also find news about this in Facebook. The Fackellauf app is available for iPhone and Android.
Our media partner, Domradio, will transmit the General Audience on Wednesday, October 8th at 10:30 (German time).
